Well, since I can control the flow from the inside of the house, one never knows. Not likely though. :D

Well the days are lengthening and the snow is slowly receding. I recently chose a general contractor and will be working out the agreement between us in the coming days. :)

All sounds good. I did all that 18 years ago. They was digging about now. Just got the cement trucks in,we had a few days of freezing weather.

Yep. There won't be any snow or ground frost, or threat there of, when we start digging around first of May. ;D Been in Royalton about 4 weeks now, another 6 will go by just as fast. Another 6 more I'll be in a new house. :)

As it turned out, I am waiting here until the 21 of May for the roads to reopen (annual spring break up closures) so we can haul full loads of cement. One of these nights this week I will meet with my excavator man and cement man to show them the layout for the buildings on the site. Should be scratching ground next week. :)

Each floor yes. :)

I think we are going to pound stakes tonight with the excavator man.

Good luck!!
Back bedroom we hit rock. And I do mean rock. Every was going good until I heard the noise of a big rock. We did not want to move the angle of the house because of the view. And if we did,would we hit another rock?? Blasting boys took care of that problem and $500 too. They must of been drinking coffee at the shop. They was about 45 minutes away and they was at my house in just about that time.  Lucky!

I think everything should be fine as far as rocks and ledge. We don't have real big rocks as a rule, there might be one like a wheel barrel on occasion. Ledge is one of them things you might not hit for 20 feet, 8 feet or 2 feet. Pretty sure it is good and deep here though. Time will tell. ;D
