Now that's progress!!!

When we left June 4, we had a big hole in the ground.   It wasn't quite finished, but the work was  on going.  Three weeks later, we have a poured basement and decking.  Walls and a roof can't be far off.
We are starting to get excited.
And I am continuing to worry.
Money.......the sole bane of my existence.  Well, not sole.  But a bane none the less.
We found a supplier for made in USA lighting fixtures.  The website says made in USA.  All the fixtures start with the statement these are made in USA.  So I guess when I e-mailed them and asked what the country of origin was for their products, I might have looked a little stupid.  (or a lot!)  Anyway, we think we are going to order fixtures from them in the next week or so.  We seem to have hit a time when they are also having a sale, and this means considerable savings for us.
I was looking at the foundation and thought...geez, this looks small.  One month ago I thought the footprint was gigantic, now it looks small.  I remember this happening with other new projects, my perspective gets a little off and I can't tell how big, or little, something is.
I am going to update this blog on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  Mostly it will be pictures.  That way people can follow along and listen to me carp about money and other stuff.
