Big Gravel, Little Since

The excavators got the big #2 gravel spread in the driveway last Thursday, but they haven't done a whole lot since then. The gravel is hard to drive on (even in the truck) but it's even harder to walk on in boots. The dog (Buddy) prefers to walk in the muddy grassy areas and I can't say I would argue with him if I didn't understand what muddy feet do to carpet...
Kate is still working on the pictures from last week so I will get those posted as soon as they are available. Several great pictures, they just haven't been processed yet. Even got a couple pictures of Jesse on his birthday with his 3 finger salute to the new project.
Somewhat disappointed today because they didn't start digging the basement. No word from the contractor yet on the timeline, but I'm sure he has a good reason for the timing. Looking forward to rapid progress once they get all the subcontractors lined up.

The House is Started!

We have been planning a new house for over 2 years now. After planning and drawing and budgeting and meeting with builders and then redrawing and rebudgeting and doing it all over again, Andy reports the house construction is finally getting started.

There were 2 bulldozers and a Bobcat delivered yesterday. They only had to pull down one tree to clear out the path for the driveway. This was done on Monday April 14th. Jay reported they had taken out some of the fencing to get the driveway out past the barn and did a little dirt moving, but not too much.

Hopefully they will get a little further tomorrow. Maybe interest rates will go down a bit before the construction loan gets through. We'll see.

Country Decor Blog

Hello and welcome to the first entry in my Country Decor product blog. After years of hearing all the hype about blogging and the "blogosphere", I finally decided to give blogger a try. I'm anxious to hear what you think of the posts and welcome your feedback on topics and products that relate to country / primitive decorating.

A little about me... I started a primitive decor website in 2006 and have been exploring this amazing industry ever since. The number of crafters and country product manufacturers continues to amaze me. There are literally thousands of fantastic country decor products in the market today. Our goal at Primitive Home Decors is to find the best vendors and products to bring together a truly unique collection of products.

Thanks again for stopping by. Make it a great week.
