The hole for the foundation has been dug. Also the border of the foundation has been laid out. Very excited that it's actually started.
On a side note, we were given a new set of swatches to pick from for siding colors. Our division has decided to switch supplier / brand for siding, they're going to a brand called Plygem. What I liked about the sample was that it had more texture than the previous. When we were originally deciding on color, we drove through a recent Ryan homes community and ran into an owner, she pointed out that the darker shades of siding show bumps and warping. You could see it pretty bad on the Khaki colored houses and darker. The bumps appear on the lighter shades, but they're much harder to see.
