First comes love, then comes... oh never mind! Nobody does things that way anymore do they? However, when it comes to matters as important as building a home for your family, there is a definite order things need to go in. It's not like life where you can messy things up and do them any which way you please.
First comes the footings,
Then comes the foundation...
And then... I have no idea what comes next, but for our dear carpenters i do hope it involves wood!
