[Please be patient while the graphics load.]

Following photos are of ground breaking and site preparation.


[Site preparation I] 06 July:
Construction begins with the arrival of a power shovel to prepare the site. Three truckloads of dirt/sand were removed.
08 July:
After the excess dirt/sand was removed the final site grading took place. It was interesting to watch the surveyors and shovel operators working together to ensure the correct elevations and grading.
[Site preparation II]
10 July:
All grading completed! Sandi proudly stands at the site of the Swanson's new home! She's worried about the dirty floor...
20 July:
Grading complete, nice & level, then the backhoes arrived to trench for underground utilities. This view is of water lines and the main electrical feed.

[Swanson's privy] 21 July:
At last!!! A structure arrives at the future home of Bob & Sandi. Really, this is a very important addition...
