Poured walls in forms.
Walls half stripped.
Me making a foundation offering.
Sean securing the offering.
Foundation before backfill.
Rear view before backfill.
Another angle of the layout, with sun.
We have power - yay!!!! Our builder was relieved as well - now he has somewhere to plug in the power tools.
Foundation with drainage pipes in place, awaiting inspection.
View from above - one of the last I'll take from so high up.
Sean has been working on the septic field with help from a family friend. First order of business was to redistribute that huge mound of earth that's been beside the house site for months.
An action shot.
Backfill complete - you can walk right up to the front of the house now.
The foundation slab was poured on the morning of May 17 - we carved our intials into it that evening.
A view of the slab and walls.
Another angle - yes, we already have some pipe laid in too.
And from the side - our deck will be L-shaped - you can see its posts - the lower part is above the smaller slab outside the main walls, on the right side of the photo.
Looking up to the septic field - probably lawn in the future (but not this summer).
Rock wall - site of a future rock garden.
So, there you have it - you're now up to date :)
More pictures as the framing goes up!!
