This week construction started on a long awaited house project in the Bywater neighborhood in New Orleans, LA.


The builders came out with stakes and string and demarcated where the footings were going. We realized that the existing fence on the property is built at a slight angle, meaning that the narrow space between the house and the fence will be a bit tighter than anticipated.  Overall though, the house fits as planned which is a good start!  Notice the couch in the right side of the picture.  This was conveniently dumped onto my site a day before construction began.  The builder’s think its a blessing, but once it rains, Im sure they will change their minds.
