Trenches!

They are digging trenches and laying plumbing. From the back yard.

From the back yard. My truck is in front of what will be my neighbor's house.

From the back yard, looking toward the street corner. It's a big yard.

They just got the last permit from the city so they can get this inspected. They should pour in a couple of weeks, if not sooner. They started a house across from where we are staying right after we moved and it just looks ready to sell. It took three months from the time they started moving dirt. We are told four months and this sounds right.

Yeah! Thank you for the pictures, Gentle Mac. It's very flat there...
and plumbing is a goodness. :wink:

Having the house laid out that way makes it clear how huge the yard area is. Elena was worried about how much there is to take care of but it was needed to go with the bigger garage.

Tell her she can have a cool riding mower now!

We did in fact discuss this today. I also told her I will mow the grass (though I will not tend plants! If she puts them in she must deal with them.)

Wow! A Rabbit sighting! That bodes well for teh abode...

You'll need to go to Harbor Freight to get a miner's headlamp so you can mow after the sun sets.
