Our very very very big day
On site was a huge crane which carefully lifted the house off the flat bed trailer, swung it around, and set it down on the requisite screw piles.
I looked up from my vantage point in the adjacent parking lot where I was taking a time lapse video and observed a large number of people with their phones out, recording the moment. In addition to large contingent from SEED Homes, there were several insurance representatives on site and a number of citizens.
The amount of blood, sweat and tears that it took to get to this day cannot be overstated. Team leaders like Stephen, Darren and Chad were running on very little sleep. The execution of the unfolding was a significant milestone for us, personally, but professionally, for the SEED Homes team, it was the realization of a vision. It also marks the beginning of a move into the affordable housing market that has the potential to be a game changer.
I was feeling a little under the weather today. While house arrival day was exhilarating, it was also emotionally draining. I was glad to take a slower day to recover.
