In the meantime, the site is staked out and awaiting excavation. Time to quadruple-check the door and window sizes, and start thinking about cabinetry and countertops.

Saturday morning's coordination meeting went well. We met with our general contractor and foreman, our plumber, our electrician and our architect-of-record to talk through the next couple of weeks of work. We plan to start excavation on Thursday, then assemble the wood formwork for the concrete footings that will support the house's steel frame. The footing need to be poured before we can lay the utilities (plumbing and electrical lines), which in turn need to be set in place before we can pour the concrete slab. All of this work needs to be done before the steel frame can go up in April.
