They're building a new house across the street from us.

They've spent the last few days digging out the basement and now they're putting in the concrete walls for the foundation.

We have trucks parked everywhere on our street and twice now I've had to go out and get people to move equipment so I could pull out of my driveway.

There is dirt on everything; my poor flowers in their pots now have a distinct dusty look about them.

I don't really mind, I guess. It's small stuff really.

The neighbors say it'll be a year before the house is finished.

A year.

Me thinks it's gonna get worse before it gets better.

I'm just glad they finally moved the porta-potty to the back of the lot. I was seeing more than I needed to for the first few days. Anyone know if there's a sink in those things? Actually, don't tell me, I'm just not gonna think about it.

  1. Okay see I am that obnoxsious person building a house. Sorry!! I promise I really tried to not have trucks and such parked everywhere. And yes it has taken us about a year. Maybe they will be fab neighbors and it all have been worth it. 🙂


  2. do not look, pretend you are lot’s wife, don’t look at the empty lot where they are building house, there is a lot going on over there and some of it may not be hand washing.
