I took this photo from a small window on the stairway going up to our bedroom. The builder next door has taken down the modest bungalow we knew as Nick’s place and has dug a huge pit. They haven’t done any work since the excavation. I guess the next step is to pour a foundation. Right now the pit is a mucky lake. I call it Nick’s Lake.
From my point of view, the quicker this guy finishes with his construction the better. The design he’s shown us for the large single family home there looks good, certainly a much better option than the severance the builder initially planned. I don’t know if he will be able to pour in these rainy conditions, nor what will happen if we now get a cold snap or a big snowfall I guess it remains to be seen.
