House Progression Post #2

Here's the next stage of our house progression! It seems like it is going by so fast, yet it can't be finished soon enough! I have to note on this stage that Richie and I had to do some manual labor.  They poured the foundation a day or so before the last round of snow that we received.  We knew that the standing water/ice/snow was not good on the foundation, so we headed out there and swept off all of the water the day after.  Luckily, it was a very sunny day and the foundation was dry within an hour. Whew!

The next stage:  Footing and Foundation.

The materials for the footing

The Footing--people who saw this picture nicknamed it the "moat"!

Here comes the cement truck...and our foundation!
