|The forms are down, and we have WALLS! (Kinda)|
|Earlier in the day the workers were still removing the forms and ties.|
|Standing on the sidewalk, the walls don't seem that tall.|
|We were perplexed by the rebar coming out of the top of the walls, but I think this is to help reinforce the porch and garage floor once it's poured.|
|There are some interesting cut-outs where Styrofoam was put to allow for additional supports down the line. This is the front porch area and garage to the right.|
|There's quite a bit of space between where they dug out for the basement and where the footings and walls were poured.|
|The wet weather and lack of bright sun has slowed the drying process for sure. You can see where the walls have been patched or are still wet.|
|This is going to be one of the favorite rooms of the house, at basement level - our main room for STORAGE!|
|Looking down from the top left corner of the house - outside the eventual master bedroom.|
|My favorite shot of the basement walls.. you can see the whole "house" from here.|
If you'd like a little more action.. check out our "tour" of the walls from the side of our lot.
Now if it will just stop raining.. we might be able to explore a bit. Or you know, take care of waterproofing, or maybe the slab, or something..
anything.. anything but rain.
