    Congratulations!

    Be glad your in Texas where I assume the ground is a bit drier in the springtime than it is here in the northeast. My foundation was poured about this time two years ago, and here's what a cement truck will do to your springtime lawn around here:

    Sorry...been a while... as usual..normal...nothing ever goes as planned...but they finally poured yesterday! I'll have some pics up shortly- my contractor took them for me since I was at work. He also took Video for me. I'm sure it was quite a site on my street with the huge "boom" truck to do the pour! went out sideways 70' then they had to conveyour it! Anyway...Looks good so far. Supposed to start on the frame work next week! AT last though..my front yard has taken a beating from the Bobcat going back and forth...but it will be worth it! Not supposed to have much rain in the next week...so hopefully that holds true!

    well...walls are now going up. The main excitement- I just picked up a new (open box item {0 hrs on bulb) Yamaha LPX-500 projector. Now I have to add that wiring too! and an outlet.

    This brings back memories. 2 1/2 years ago I was in the same boat. Did all my own wiring because I had an agreement with the builders but they would not allow me to run my own power. The electrcian cojones were on the job so I had to pay cdn$160 to get a single outlet in the ceiling. When I went to inspect the job after, they installed a light in the ceiling instead of an electrical outlet [​IMG] that was controlled by an on/off switch [​IMG]

    They fixed that
