So the house is gone... What happened next? Well after tearing down the existing house we brought in a crew to build the forms for the footings that support the foundation walls. This step was originally planned for mid-late November when the weather was a lot better, but because of the permit delays we were a bit behind schedule and the crew we had originally lined up was no longer available.

We've been pretty busy with the holidays and enjoying some down time with the family. The only down side of that is we haven't had much time to update the blog. Just because we've been quiet though, doesn't, mean we haven't had busy bees working away on site. We're fortunate enough to have a dedicated crew of guys willing to work almost right through the holidays to help us make up some of the time we lost.

With the holidays around the corner we've been super busy, but the demolition video is finally edited and ready to go! When you watch the video, it'll seem like all smashing & crashing, but in actual fact, the backhoe operator was quite the artist. He used the machine like an extension of his arm - in some instances, only removing a few bricks at a time. It was pretty amazing to watch.

It's been about a month since our last post which we know is a VERY looong time!  You must be wondering what Team Dreamhouse has been up to. In all honesty...nothing.  Well, okay we put up a construction fence.  But, otherwise - a whole lot of nothing.  We sourced some window quotes & lined up a whole slew of trades, but for the most part, we've just been playing the waiting game with the city for our building permit.
