And here is the first set

These show the first steps - clearing the site and breaking ground.
See below.

(If anyone can tell me how to get rid of this ridiculous space between the text
and the beginning of the pictures (posted from my scrapbook) please let me know.)

The site 1

This is the site of the house, ready for clearing.

Site 2

Eric marked features of the proposed house before clearing, to better show which trees should/should not go.

Clearing starts

We came to see the progress at the end of clearing day one. Poor Finn and David had ice beards. Two days later, it was in the 80's (F)

I think you should just see a bunch of inserted blank lines if you edit the text in the built-in HTML editor. If you delete those, it should suck the pictures back up to join the rest of the text.

Nope. There are two
-- and then it starts into a table, which is more complex than I care to edit. I had Clif look at it -- and he can't quite figure it out, either.

Of course, he's has SO MUCH spare time to do this! Meanwhile, y'all just have to deal.

Unless you have other suggestions?

So far, the house looks great! Having dealt with a contractor simply for repairs and minor remodeling (and having dealt with my parents while they had a house built - twice), I understand many of the stresses involved. That's why I'll never have a house built from scratch; I'll take the "used" model any time (the core of our house is believed to have been built in the 1860s on 6th St. It's now on 4th St).

It's always interesting to see pictures of friends I haven't seen in years. You haven't changed much. Clif...
