St. Paddy's day was the day we started digging the basement. I say "we" meaning the big machines that are everywhere. They also knocked down a couple of trees that had to go. It smells like cedar everywhere you walk! I will never tire of that perfume! We are holding out for a couple of trees that will be really close to the house and may have to come down before it's all over. The weather was over the top beautiful. The digging will go on for the rest of the week, since they have to over-dig and pound and all that extra stuff. Hopefully the basement will get poured next week, weather permitting. Here's what the day looked like.
Gotta love these bad boys!
