Friends' house

The things that are happening are behind the scenes right now. The architect is producing the final drawings so we can get a building permit. We are waiting for the county to run the tests for our new septic system, so we still have three holes in the back yard. We do have some friends who are further along in the process. I am including a picture of their home to give you an idea of what is to come.

The Beginning

This blog was created to show our family and friends the changes that are happening at our house as we elevate it. We hope to soon live in 'An Taigh Ard' (The High House).
The status today is we have three holes in our back yard 4 to 5 feet deep to run tests to put in a new septic system.
We are asking to put a garage under the house when it is raised. We may get two one car garages rather than a two car garage because of the location of the chimney.
We also had the outside of our house painted. We need to paint the trim.
