Haul out the plumbing...wait that is not a Christmas song!

Well, the building has begun and we could not be happier, this means soon we will hear the sound of hooves on the rooftop. OK so the sounds of little Shepherd toddling around the new addition instead of hooves. 

For those who are not aware of what is going on here is a quick synopsis. My husband and I live next door to my parents.  My sister and her husband currently reside in Daholonega, GA (look it up a cute little town with a "rich" history). My brother-in-law just graduated, we are so proud of him, so they are moving to Orlando.  Mom and Dad decided to keep the family close as in same house close. So they are building a new suite onto the house to accommodate them and then my sister, her hubbie and my nephew will live in the main part of the home.  Building started on December 6th with the dropping off of the wood to build the frame for the concrete to be poured.

 Day 2 was not that eventful, since they started digging to lay the pipe for plumbing.

Day 2 Start Digging for Plumbing Lines

Day 2 Plumbing

Day 2 with Ebony supervising the job at the end of the day
 Day 3 they moved more dirt around and cut the cable, Internet and phone lines (whoops).  Granted the cable line was only supposed to be on the side of the yard they were not digging but the cable company ran three lines to the house when there was only supposed to be one. Lazy cable people!

Day 3 more dirt (nice Bobcat)

 Day 4 was pipe day, the plumbing for the shower toilet and sinks has been laid and awaits inspection. The Inspectors came on Friday 12-10-10 so now they can move onto grading the land on Monday 12-13-10.

Day 4 the toilet and shower

 Day 5 or what would be officially day 8 on Monday 12-13-10. They started to grade and prep the ground for the concrete to be poured. Although  the weather has not been behaving lately with the cold snap they will probably pour the slab Thursday or Friday.

Well, that is it for now but I am sure we will have more to say at the end of the week.
