Almost Ready!

We are almost ready to pour the concrete for the slab of the basement! John designed and put in the plumbing, which will be under the slab, after these pictures were taken. It is amazing how much money he saves us by being so handy – God has certainly blessed him with talent!

Now, all we are waiting for is the weather. We are very thankful for the rain – it is great for the grapes, as well as, for the other farmers in the area. Hopefully, tomorrow (if the road is not to soupy for the cement truck to maneuver) or Monday we will be able to pour!

Without anything to give perspective, it really looks  small. But, realizing that it is actually larger than the house we are renting, helps me gain some perspective.

  3. Make a house is a big challenge. At least your husband know things of construction and that save money. We want to make some changes here but some things my husband know how to do it but others no, so we need money for that.
