Backfilling - check
Meeting neighbors - check
Our foundation had the Geo-Mat waterproofing installed on Thursday the 21st. Things seem to be progressing pretty well. When we visited our lot, we noticed that there seemed to be some water collecting in the ditch. We asked our PM about this and he advised that this was normal. We did receive some rain a few days earlier, so hoping that it is in fact normal and nothing to worry about.
After the waterproofing, we were advised that the foundation inspection would occur on Monday the 25th and they would backfill on Tuesday.

The inspection must have passed because when we arrived at our home on Tuesday, the backfilling was complete! We are starting to get a good idea on the size of our home and the layout of our yard. Our backyard looks like it will be a decent size but not overwhelmingly big, so we're pretty excited about that. Patio... Built-in Grill.... Firepit.... Golf putting green..... One can dream.

We also had a chance to meet our neighbors on our visit. They seem really nice and friendly so we are happy about that! They moved in a few months ago and have not had any issues thus far. They mentioned that our PM was great with them and we've been feeling the same way with the communication that we've been getting from him. We also talked a little bit about the development and how nice it would be if they didn't go ahead with the 2nd phase and we just had the trees behind us!
Lumber gets dropped on Tuesday, September 2nd, and framing is to start that day or the day after. That's all for now folks.
