Goldings Build

It's happening.
The Golding's are building.

When we moved into the Trailerhood, nearly five years ago, our plan was always to save money up and build a house. Our forever house, on the ranch.

In 2013, we put our plans out for bid.
They came back, and we determined that we needed to wait a little longer and save some more money.
I say that like it was an easy decision to make, or an easy fact to accept.
It wasn't, it was disappointing, but in the end we knew it was the right decision.

After more saving, planning and a lot of prayer, it is finally happening!
We broke ground on our forever home on June 8th.
For those of you that followed my folk's home building journey five years ago, the same builder out of Limon is building ours too.

Here's a timeline of the past two weeks:

Monday, June 8th - The first day of the project, dig day.

The kids certainly enjoyed all of the dirt!

Tuesday, June 9th - The second day of digging and the hole is done!  I LOVE this picture.

Here's a fun one of the kids playing in the dirt.

Monday, June 15th - And we have a road!  "Everything I love is at the end of an old dirt road.  I wouldn't give a nickle to have it paved in gold."

Thursday, June 18th - Concrete footers poured.


Monday, June 22nd - Forms ready for the big pour.

Tuesday, June 23rd - We passed four concrete trucks on our way to work this morning! {Let's ignore our filthy windshield!}

So I'll do my best to keep you all updated.
As you can tell, these guys work quickly!
