Our new Home – Part I The Foundation

Part I – The Foundation

Well after all the struggles to get finance for a loan for the new home. My wife finally got us finance. Yes my wife!! She’s amazing and never gave up until everything was approved. So for all her hard work, I have to say thank you, my love.

She has make me a better person when it comes to my financial and trust me I still have lots to learn, but I’m blessed that my partner in life is very good and responsible when it comes to finances.

Now going back to the title of my post Our New Home, construction began on Sept 1st, 2011. They start digging the hole for the foundation and basement. Pretty amazing how quick they work once everything is approved and the funds are available.

Here is a photo of the lot we got on a new sub-division call Hidden Acres in Indiana. Very quite as we will be only the second house in the block. Our lot is a just under an acre, so not to bad size for these days. Usually lots are only half an acre. So I’m very happy as the kids will have plenty of room to play and I will have plenty of grass to mow.

On Sept 1st Tucker Homes a local builder started our project. Right away you can see some heavy equipment doing some digging work. I was very impressed on how quick they cut the foundation or hole.  In a few days they had the entire base for the foundation.

The following week the foundation walls were up and for the first time I can really tell how big our basement will be. My lovely wife says is not that big, but trust me I think we should have plenty of room for a bar and a big screen TV or maybe a projector and don’t forget a poker table. Liam agree with me as he actually walk and craw around the whole foundation, walk the basement and check the filtration sealant the put around the external walls. He even check the sewer main he our own personal inspector.

I include a small slide show of the Foundation progress, it shows the empty lot, up to the basement walls without the floor yet. Press the Play button in the middle of the first photo.

We are very buzz about the whole project as now it’s looking closer and closer. Hopefully we will be able to be in our new house before the New Year.


I will update again in Part II the Framing.
