Getting Started!

We have some big news!   We broke ground for the addition!!  It's a major milestone that takes a lot of work.  The old deck had to be ripped off the building and then the digging started.

Once the hole was dug, the guys got the footings poured.

They set up for a day and then the foundation wall forms were put into place.

It was fascinating to watch them pour the walls - much like a well practiced dance.

And when they pulled the forms off, we had a perfectly level foundation.

But we still needed to pour the floor (this will be a tall crawl space, but we wanted the convenience and benefits of a concrete slab for the floor).  The guys started this bright and early one morning and quickly got the concrete poured and started to float it out.

With that milestone complete, we're ready to start building!
