Framing the Foundation
Some progress has been made. They constructed the foundation and began to pour the concrete.
From what I can tell, they construct a framework with the pieces you see above and to the right. Then they pour the concrete in the slats in the top, sort of like a mold. I guess next they will take these frames off and we will have our basement.
This picture to the left is just showing about how much yard we will have off of the back of our house before we hit the hillside. They projected about 15 feet from the back of the morning room. If we add a deck/patio, that will obviously cut down on our "play" space for the kids.
