A Good Foundation

I haven't been to the property since Sunday, due to my back surgery.  My sister came today, Thursday, and I asked her to take us to the house.  She hasn't been since they broke ground.  Even after a five hour drive, she was nice enough to drive there for me.

One of the most important parts of a house is the foundation.  And we have a foundation for our house now.  Looks like the crawl space will be adequate.  Looks like It wouldn't be bad to crawl around in, as long as I don't have to be the one doing it!

This view is from the East looking toward the garage.  Mostly you see the porch in 
the foreground and the garage in the background.

This view is from the porch, straight through to the back covered porch and our bedroom on the left.

And this is the far East side of the house which will be two bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom.  

Now I think the house looks huge.

They will be painting the waterproofing on the outside of the foundation probably tomorrow.  Then they will back fill the foundation.  

After the back fill, we will have a better look at how the house will sit on the property.  Our plan was NOT to have a bunch of stairs up the front.  There should be only one or two steps to floor level.  Guess we'll find out soon enough.

Yep, looks like a good foundation.  You need that in a house.  You have a good foundation in a house and you're apt to have a great foundation in your home.


  1. It is coming along wonderfully. Here in Michigan everybody has basements, so it funny to see such short foundation walls.

  2. This is interesting. Everywhere the construction is different. Hubby and I love to look at houses being built. I'll have to show him yours. He may end up subscribing to your blog. LOL
