Stonehenge!

That's right, we are really not building a house at all but a druidic temple! Actually these are the foundation forms. They sit in neat little baskets so they can lower them into the hole.

Drain Tiles

This shows the drain tiles they put in today. There is corrogated tubing on each side of the footings that will go to a sump pump. Should keep the basement dry!

Drain Tiles

I think this garbage can looking thing is the holding tank for the sump pump.

Drain Tiles

More drainage pipes. There a good thing!

Pea Fill

They also brought in most of the pea fill today. Couldn't spread it out here though until the footings are done. They also got poured today.

Drainage

I think this tub runs under the ground to the drain tiles so that the water will go into the ravine. Will eventually be buried more I think.

Pea Fill

That's a lot of little rocks!

Footings

Upper footings have also been poured.

Footings

Don't know what this little step is for. Just a change in elevation I guess.

Footings

Pea Fill

Here you can clearly see that they have leveled the fill with the footings. The basement slab will sit on top of the fill and overlap the footings.

Daaaaaaaaaaaa Daaaaaaaaa Daaaaaaaa Da! Da!

All these worlds are yours except Fallen Oak. Attempt no landing there.
