Here is our first video construction update on the 100K House project. Nic is working hard to shoot and compile video each week for Friday release. A lot of his effort seems to be finding the cheesiest music possible to sync up with the footage, which makes it all the more entertaining. As we get farther along, we may add some commentary to explain what’s going on, but for the first week we tried to keep it simple.
This week, we had the ceremonial ground breaking followed by the actual ground breaking two days later. Brian, our contractor, apparently hired the best foundation guy in Philly, Tino, who has managed to dig and pour the footers for both houses in a day and a half. The concrete will set over the weekend and the foundation walls will be formed and poured early next week in preparation for the insulation and slab.
We will also be releasing daily photos of the construction site from both the front and back of the houses. You will be able to subscribe to the photo feed and at the end we’ll turn it into a video compilation as well. Stay tuned and don’t blink or you might miss something.
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
