We’re accustomed to the noise of tractors here in farm country, but last week we woke to considerably more noise than usual. Across the field, a crane unfurled. Becca clambered to the top of the swingset for a better look.

From our front porch, this was my view.

[Zoomed in.] Terry’s sister, Janet, and her husband have been anxiously waiting for their new house to be placed on its foundation.

Voila. From empty field to full basement and house in 30 days!

Janet reports that another month might be necessary for the contractor to build the garage, lay carpet, etc, but the progress is encouraging.

    Looks like you’re going to have neighbors?

      Yes! It’s nice that Janet and Ron are moving nearby. After retiring from the military, they decided to settle back here to be near family.

    So this is Terry’s sister whom you helped move back from Colorado Springs (?). I didn’t know you were going to be neighbors. What a nice arrangement for everyone!
