Time Spent So Far:
240 Hours on Site + Planning
The hill has a big hole in it.
On Saturday morning, the big boss showed up at the top of the hill.
And for the next two days, it pulsed a tiny red laser light around and around, watching what we were doing.
The laser level has a buddy, called a detector, that you attach to a big measuring stick. He's kind of the inside guy, with the inside scoop. When the detector is level with the flashing red light, it beeps, and you know how deep to dig.
But before we get to digging, we have to lay out the foundation of the Momplex. That's the Ram and his cousin Jared.
The Momplex needs to be below grade on the front and sides by four feet, with a drive under garage on the back side. It's a 44 foot by 44 foot perfect square, and we've got some requests that it needs to face the mountain view.
We spent the next few hours positioning the house.
And this poor little weed happened to be growing exactly where the back corner of the Momplex will sit.
And then from the first corner, we found the remaining three corners. And it was connect the dots time, spraying a big orange square from dot to dot on top of the hill.
Then the Ram started digging with Snort
And dumping of course
Into great big piles of dirt perfect for creating really dirty laundry in.
Can you blame her?
Because Dad get's to play on the dirt hill too.
Under the boss's watchful eye of course.
Even when you owner build, you still gotta boss, silently watching, ready to beep loudly if you are off just a tiny bit.
But somebody has to do the dirty work.
I do believe we are ready for footers!
To be continued.
