Today was an important point in our construction as we had to get special equipment onto the laneway to look for the utilities servicing both the neighbours house and our’s. We are thrilled and everything went even better than expected. It would have been a costly fix if we found the pipes under the laneway weren’t sufficient enough to service two homes, so the long drawn out summer with the Region of Peel was well worth it! So now we have water and sewer services where the house will be and hydro, cable and telephone service pipes have been installed. Tomorrow is more excavating (shoutout to Lopies Excavating – the best – experienced, professional, tidy) and on Friday the forming will begin. It’s been amazing weather so I hope it continues into next week. Since pictures of utility digging is pretty boring (well, there’s one), we have posted some images from our ideabook on Houzz.com that have helped when designing the house. We are going for a country/contemporary look, if that makes sense. We’ll see how close we actually come to this!
