This is the land before the project has even started. The CAT in the background is the approximate location.
Starting to dig the foundation. Dad (Kent Ridgeway) ran the CAT and pushed the dirt into piles, Mikey Lee (our friend) ran the excavator, and Lea ran the grade stick. The dogs, kiddo and I mostly just watched!!
This is the completely dug foundation. There will be a full walkout basement.
