Last Thursday we had to have our soil tested. Apparently - from this test they can tell if there is a fault line or such beneath the area where we want to build our home. The cost?? $650.00 which included an extra $50.00 for coming out to our area. I know it is worth the effort to do this evidenced by what happened in the Woodlands... where a fault line was discovered only by evidence of home foundations breaking! We do not want that to happen to us!!
I feel at this point all I am doing is writting checks. Since we have yet to break ground, I am not as excited as I want to be. I have to close my eyes and see my home in my "faith vision"!
Yesterday though, this vision was enhanced as we now have the first drawings for the second story of the home!!
