I am building my first home. Lucky me because it is in the woods! It is an adventure I surely will not forget.
Me with Rory

The phone hasn't rung.
I have been expecting the excavator's call all week. He was going to meet me last week to pin the stakes for the corners of the house.
I left him a message this afternoon, thinking he would call today at the latest.
I hope he is not running behind, but I suspect that he is. In the past he has not called until he is ready to start or to meet up.
It did rain the beginning of last week, so I truly suspect it has set him back.
I want him to start digging tomorrow because I want the walls finished by the time my brother comes home on Saturday for a week. He said he would tar the walls for me, so the foundation walls have to be up while he is here to tar them. Otherwise, I will have to tar it myself if I can.
I called a neighbor to get a couple of contractor names, one plumber and a framer. He gave me a framer's name who he says does everything.
I have to get that plumber lined up to rough-in the plumbing in the basement.
