Starter Home 2.0 Excavation Begins
After 2+ years of planning and preparation, the Starter Home 2.0 project finally broke ground yesterday. Based on the recommendation of the surveyor and builder when verifying the current and proposed grading for the site, it was decided yesterday morning to set the first floor elevation a foot higher than was previously shown on the plot plan. Doing this allows for proper drainage away from the house and will limit the amount of dirt that needs to be hauled off site. In visiting the site yesterday afternoon, I was able to take some pictures that are posted below and meet the next door neighbor to the west of the lot for the first time, who has lived on Parkview for nearly 40 years.
