Breaking Some Ground


When we first came up with vision for our home we knew we wanted a large home with space for our family and a massive library. To accomplish our goals and accommodate the desire to build it all ourselves, we decided to design the home to be built in phases. The first phase, the kitchen, dining, and living room phase is the one we are living in now. Our next phase will eventually be our bedroom wing. Another 40’x60’ box with five bedrooms in it.

Last weekend the building process began on the excavator. We started clearing  the building site to get an idea of where the bedroom wing will go . When we built the main house I was not the best at documenting the process. This time around I’m going to attempt to be a bit more motivated and diligent documenting the process starting with this post.

Time elapse

Short time elapse video of the clearing process, ending with a drone flying over the top of the house we have now showing the building site, and capturing the before.
