DH went by yesterday to find the lot had been staked. We were supposed to begin digging today, but with the forecast of rain, we were skeptical that they would be able to begin. Got a call from our PM this morning that they are unable to dig today. Instead, they will dig Thursday and pour the footers Friday. Here are the obligatory silt fence shots with virtually invisible stakes :)
The empty space between the houses is "green space" that will be our view out the back. As much as I would have liked a lot without houses behind it, at least we will not have anyone directly in our backyard.
