I'll admit, I spent a lot of time standing in our front yard admiring our house that first day. It was such a blessing. We were finally about to get our brand new home.
The same day that the set-up crew came, this large truck came down our driveway. It was a few days ahead of schedule, but we have a septic tank! Oh did I mention that it is my birthday? So I literally got a septic tank for my birthday.

The crew started digging. About a month before closing the permit company came out and testing our septic location. It was determined that we needed a mound septic system. A mound system is when the septic tank is partially above ground, but it is covered with dirt. This can be caused by several things.

That night we got to walk through our new house.
We also were handed over our keys. I can't explain the feeling we had when we crawled into the house for the 1st time to check it out. Oh right... there wasn't stairs that the time, and the house sits about 3.5-4 feet off the ground. I literally had to CRAWL through the door.
