When we last saw you all, it was late Wednesday night and our footings had just been poured.
Thursday morning the PM called with a quick update. Namely, engineer thought the site looked good, footings were poured, forms for the foundation walls would go in Friday, and we'd probably get those poured Monday.
Around 8:30 this morning, the husband dropped by and found this:
|Forms mostly in!|
We swung back by the house at 4:30 p.m. and the cement guy was just washing down his truck. Our walls were poured!
|Front porch far left, garage right|
|More garage excitement.|
|Walk-out rear of the basement (also lots of crazy extra forms in there).|
|Looking in from the future backyard.|
|There will be a set of French doors right here.|
|Sort of fascinated by the forms.|
|Been trying for weeks to get a good front-of-the-house shot, but there's always equipment |
parked there. This is as close as I've gotten.
And in other news:
-- We're getting FLAT CEILINGS! It's not a cheap upgrade (no surprise), but for us, worth it. Can't say how happy with are with RH for working with us on it.
-- That house across the street - it's a Yorkshire. The husband was right all along. (And now I have gone on record admitting it.)
