Making Macarthur Manor // Updates & Fences

 So much has changed in just a week! The last time I updated on the house {1st Update} was the first time Ethan met with our Project Supervisor Donnie and now, one week later Ethan's met with him again and they've finalized the positioning of the house and Donnie's crew is coming in today {6/30} with the main foundation dirt to shape the actual outline of the house in preparation for the foundation to be poured! I'm so glad they can do these things without our permits, but the awesome news is that our actual permits should come in by the end of THIS WEEK! Donnie's also got an appointment scheduled for us in two weeks for the plumbers to come out and lay our plumbing!
Ethan's also be working really hard and busting his butt to complete our fence before Charlotte gets here! In just 4 days he's completed all this by himself! That's post holes dug, posts leveled and cemented, rails hung, and the start of the pickets! He's pulling 13+ hour days and comes home sweaty, dirty, and tired, but I'm so proud of him! He's got his mind set that he wants to accomplish this and it's looking pretty darn great!

Hopefully the next update will have a completed fence to share! You'd never know Ethan's never put up a fence in his life! Thanks, Youtube, and I'm so proud of you, Babe! ;)
