Extension Progress - Footings Dug!

Major milestone today, my dad and I dug the footings for the extension. It's been a long time leading up to this, with work on the patio, boiler and drainage all having to happen first.  



A picture of our future kitchen! 
It took us the morning to get them dug out and I'm so happy that it's done now. 
I've booked the building inspector to come round on Tuesday and hopefully we'll pour the concrete on Wednesday.
I do think we've dug them a little deep, but I'd rather that than too shallow and for the sake of a little extra concrete it's not the end of the world. I can't wait to get this project moving upwards!
