These are the days of “prepare yourself.”

Tapes“The excavation will feel small.”

“You’re going to think that they made a mistake with the foundation dimensions.” 

“Don’t panic when the foundation walls go in.  They’ll look too tall.”

It seems that every conversation during this phase of the project boils down to “prepare yourself.”  There’s a lot of progress on the house, but in areas that are typically unfamiliar — footings, foundation walls, vertical drains and their ilk.  And each of these conversations is invariably followed by a horror story ranging from panicked calls to contractors to last minute foundation additions.

We’re set.  Between our Flying Point Road experience and a lot of measuring during the design phase, we’re prepared to ride this one out.

2,500 square feet over two floors is still 2,500 square feet over two floors.
