    Looks like you'll get there by years end.
    This will be fun to watch but you really need to calm down. Not to excited are we?

    Well, there are no more pics till Monday when they will start assembly of the panels for the poured walls. Meanwhile I will watch as the water filtration company chlorinates my well So unless you want to see more pics of the footers, I am taking the weekend off to prepare for my upcoming GrandMom roll (grand daughter due Sept 19). My husband and I are driving to pick up this vintage 1920 bassinet for the baby.

    okay, update time. Had a delay. Framing crew for forms arrived Wednesday 070208. Sleeves were put in all walls for drains, TPR's, etc. My QT fish spawned and changing water was impossible due to my well being chlorinated on Monday So into the old pond (4000 gal) they went. Good news is even with retro drain there were some dead spots and the koi have cleaned them up and water is water is very clear. Bad news is we will have to catch them when new pond is done. Not sure how many pictures we're allowed, but I guess we'll find out.

    Very impressive, looks professional. Unlike most of the hacks that frequent this place (myself included :P)
