Future Home

A few months ago, Cristian and I were blessed to be able to purchase a piece of property here in Jarabacoa to build a home.

Last week ditches were dug for the foundation and on Saturday we poured the foundation.

This is a really exciting project for us since we will be able to do almost everything ourselves, since Cristian used to work construction and he knows how to do almost everything from start to finish.  Cristian's dad is a Master Builder, as well as his uncle, and they have both been helping out.  We also have many friends who work construction so it has been really fun having all our friends pitch in and help.  My dad is planning on coming down at the end of the summer for several weeks and we are really looking forward to him helping us with carpentry at that stage.

This week's project: laying block for the walls.  More pictures to come.
