The hole now has a companion!

Yesterday, our lot was dug and today the crew installed/poured the footer and now has a outline around the home. They put in the drain pipes around it and put gravel. The large material you see below standing up are the wall panels that will be used to form the foundation walls. My PM said that they will need to be dried over the weekend but on Monday they will start putting up the walls of the foundation so until then hopefully next week we will have more to report. The hole is slowly starting to be filled up and it is FUN to watch.

No longer a bare hole

closer look of the footer along the perimeter of house

If look closely the drain pipes are installed next to the footer

Hopefully there will be something new by Monday. :)


  1. YAY!! The hole isn't lonely anymore! lol

  2. Pretty soon your basement will be poured and your wood will be delivered! So excited for you! I enjoyed these pictures!

  3. BRING ON THE WOOD! Sorry framing was one of my favorite parts.

  4. It's moving right along. It's so nice that you get to see so much of the progress. Since we were building in the dead of winter it was always so dark by the time we got there.
