Frost could be in the ground by then. Book it for next spring.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Can you get the floor poured before the frost gets here.

Building and concrete will most likely be spring. I'd like to get the fill dirt in before winter hits.

Letting it get tru a freeze/thaw cycle is a good idea! Also concrete will finish better with a summer mix.

Excavation and site prep will start in a couple of weeks!
I've been busting ass getting ready. I've got the site pretty much cleared other than a big lilac bush that my wife wants to try and root the cuttings. I pounded 15 T posts today for the temporary fence, I'm sure I'll be feeling it tonight/tomorrow. Once I get a date set for the fill and site prep, I've got to hang the temporary fence up and disassemble around 75' of chain link fence. The excavator told me he'd yank the posts out for me.

Still waiting on excavation - but I've got the builder locked down for spring - as early as we can safely do it!

Yes - he's been back about a week, and he wasn't missed. He hasn't stuck his nose in it yet - just a matter of time.
