More forward progress this past week.
The foundation was poured over the footing.
Here is a closer look.
And here I am - happy to be standing in the basement!
Later that week our excavator laid the perimeter drains and backfilled around the foundation.
Here's what it looks like now.
And here is a long view from the future driveway
Dean's family came out on Sunday - the coldest day of the fall, so far, and the day of the first snow of the season - for a first hand look.
(By the way, any of you are welcome to come out for a look-see!)
Laila is amazed at the progress!
Lauren and Dean try to keep warm...
While Jasper tries to catch snow flakes on his tongue.
And everyone likes the view from the top! This is the West wall of the basement...
The boys all wanted to try out the backhoe - which is again out of commission - but Dean will get her going this week.
Later this week, Unitil will install phone poles for the electric, and our builder plans to get started on the framing! WOO- HOO!
