The underneath stuff you don't see...

 Well, progress has been happening on our house.   The forms have been taken down, drain pipes have been laid down, and a mixture of creek gravel and dirt has been brought in to put around the concrete.  The water is supposed to drain through the creek gravel better.
   Here you can see some of the black sealant on the concrete, and the footings have been poured for the front porch.
 Load after load of the creek gravel/dirt has been brought in for the basement floor.  You can still see the concrete footings for the support pillars.

You can also see some of the drainage pipe along the left wall.

Dirt has been backfilled next to the retaining wall on the back side of the garage.

All in all, it is pretty exciting to see the progress being made.  Pretty soon it will be time to start adding the wood.
