I’ve mentioned to you before that construction has been underway in the empty lot across the street from us. I thought I would give you report on its progress, complete with pictures! The builder got a very late start on it, and the schedule has also been impacted by excessive rainfall. The work crews are really going to have to step up the pace. This house is supposed to be ready for a late September parade of homes show!
Here is the empty lot that has been our visual eyesore for the past three years. Boundary stakes mark the house perimeter, and a few concrete blocks are piled up next to the power transformer. Construction began a day or two after I took this photo.

The foundation work was finished while we were gone to Utah, and the first floor platform was installed not long after we got back.

It gets really exciting at this point to see the walls go up! Our view is changing in a hurry now that the first floor has been framed. Today, more materials were delivered and the crew started working on creating the second floor.

We also learned that the house located on the left-hand side of the above photo has now sold. So new neighbors will be moving in there soon. Slowly but surely, our little villa section of the subdivision is growing!
