Our Big Home Move

We're moving! From a manfactured housing community in Wichita, we're moving 3 miles south. It's a half-acre lot we just bought, just off the Haysville Turnpike Exit. The following pages are our journal of the project.

July 25th - Day 2: Pour house footings, pour garage walls
July 26th - Day 3: Build House Wall Forms
July 28th - Day 4: Pour House Walls
July 29th - Day 5: Clean up and get ready for garage floor
July 30th - Day 6: A day of rest
July 31st - Day 7: Pour Garage Floor
August 1st - Day 8: Concrete work is finished!
August 2nd - Day 9: Rain Delay!
August 3rd - Day 10: Starting the Garage
