This was a big day. No turning back now. I took a deep breath and was finally able to relax once the construction crew began to break ground in our back yard. We had to cut down a bunch of bushes and small trees, which we were a little sad about, but we will just have to plant new ones once the office is complete.
This process took a couple of extra days because our soil was too soft. They had to dig deeper than usual, and fill the hole in with gravel before pouring the foundation.
