CONSTRUCTION BEGINS !
Yay yay !
We're so excited to see the foundation work begin. Unfortunately both of us were sick earlier in the week, so we missed seeing the very beginning of the foundation take shape. We visited after four days of work had been done and we were greeted by this fantastic sight.
The workers have been putting down some concrete for the base and a good portion of the steel rebar for the foundation. The house is quite tall and Japan has strict construction standards because of earthquakes, so the foundation will be big and strong.
It's going to be really exciting to see it go up from here.
But, both of us had the feeling that the house looks smaller than we
imagined. Everyone keeps assuring us that houses always look small at
this stage...we hope they're right.
