Stoked to see progress pics!

Always wanted to build a home from scratch to get exactly what we want.

Nice! Keep us posted on the progress. I was on 38 acres before I retired to the Gulf. I loved living in the country when I lived in Tennessee.

When our foundation was done my wife looked at me and said it was kind of small.

The hay is ground cover to keep frost out before pouring the footings. And a cellar is a code name for nuclear bomb shelter Don't you have one?

OK. They put down thermal cloth out here in CO for both the pour and cure if needed. I guess I have a walk-out shelter? Is it a full height basement, or a crawl space?

It is a full height basement. And I thought you were joking about the cellar comment! Basement, cellar, we call them both up here

More progress! Foundation is done, and almost capped. Says he'll finish putting the floor down tomorrow. Garage foundation is poured and will be stripped tomorrow as well. Garage already looks too small

My nephew has 40 acres out in the country, and he has an area where we can go and relive stress by shooting our guns.
