The forms for the footings are in place.  If the weather holds, the footings should be poured soon.  We're looking at some warm weather to come, so the footings and foundation could actually be poured soon.

I spent some time today researching if and how concrete can be poured in cold weather.  I came to a major conclusion: I'm not the concrete subcontractor and so I'll let the GC and the concrete subcontractor worry about it.  I'm still hoping the weather stays warm, though!

Why do the pictures say 12/06 when the page says 12/07?  Because the (new) camera and I are working out a fundamental problem in the difference between noon and midnight.
