Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Construction

It is not often in life that one gets to build a house to one’s specs. We did, so we took 6 months planning it and even built a cardboard model to scale. Oh yes, being Asian, Feng Shui  ( 風水) literally meaning “Wind-Water” or Geomancy was incorporated too, based on our birth dates to draw the best Qi (氣).  😀

So … there they were, pumping concrete for our slab after tons of fill-dirt had been brought in for elevation.Photo0145

then came the concrete pieces

the pieces went up and there I was ~ opening the imaginary backdoor

sloooowly, brick by brick, wall by wall, it began to look more house-like

after 9 months, it finally took shape & there, below, are the entrances to our garage and to the left is our front door.
