The crew came out yesterday and excavated for our Quonset Loft House footings. We’ve finally officially broken ground!

Of course I had to fly the drone around and get some aerial shots.

It took over halfway into the year to get to the point of starting our Quonset Loft House build, but we made it! We’re building this thing! If we can manage to keep things on track from here, then by sometime next summer we’ll have our first vacation rental guests in the house!
