It's Foundation Time!

The footings were poured last week, and today the foundation is going in. I had no idea how this process worked until I went to the lot today to take a look.

Here's a good view of the forms they use to hold the cement.

You can see the height that this gives the house in the back. The top of the form that is closest in the picture is where our basement floor will be (I think.)

Again, a view from the front curb.

We're making some progress on the house! Last week Steve had the footings done. These pictures show several views of of the lot at that point.

Here's the front curb showing where our house will be...someday.

This is a good (front) view of the footings, all ready for the foundation.

This is a view of the back of the lot, from the intersection behind it.
