Since framing has commenced I should probably get caught up on the foundation work that went on at the end of summer. Instead of boring everyone with the details of rebar, drain tile and waterproofing, I thought it might be fun to give a series of snapshots that show how dramatically this phase altered our landscape. Excavating, followed by an extremely rainy summer leaves a site looking something like a war zone. Formwork and half finished concrete walls do little to help this image. However, in the end, after the backfill, there is a sort of peace that is restored, and the remaining pieces of concrete sticking out of the ground assure us that there is a house being built here and it may even eventually have some order to it.
