We went a while without much progress. The weather was really making an impact. It had been one rainy day after another, but here we were on April 21, 2015 and we had waterproofing!
|Everything covered in black will be beneath the ground.|
|The view from the left of the house. Crazy to think that only a foot or two will be visible once they backfill.|
|The garage and porch - eventually they'll need to bring in a few loads of dirt to level things out.|
|The front of the house, and our trash pile.|
|I'm still surprised by how tall the walls are, but it means we'll have a nice cozy basement.|
|On the left of our lot, you can see where the ground levels quite a bit. I'm so glad we have a fairly level back yard - or will once it's all over with.|
|A close up of the "weeping tiles" - the black corrugated pipe curled on the ground.|
From Wikipedia: A French drain or weeping tile is a trench filled with gravel or rock or containing a perforated pipe that redirects surface water and groundwater away from an area. A French drain can have perforated hollow pipes along the bottom to quickly vent water that seeps down through the upper gravel or rock.
