Basement Walls going up!
Seeing our basement walls go up was pretty exciting. Here the forms are ready and braced. This is the front of the house. Later it will be backfilled and it will get a front porch.
Looking at the back view.
It was especially neat to see the concrete placement truck get set up.
The guy in the orange shirt is spraying the insides of the forms with something to keep the concrete from sticking.
Here comes the concrete!
First they poured concrete footings for the pillar supports. These will be under the basement floor to help support the ceiling.
This guy had a really neat job. He uses the remote control to guide the boom on the truck. Looks like playing video games might actually have some real world applications!
