The footings are poured.  I guess it makes sense that foundations go on top of footing.  We were able to climb down into the basement area--that was cool.

This is the front door area.  I'm not sure how the footings work for where the front door area slab will be. Standing about where the utility room will be! Why aren't drain tiles made of tile?

They covered the entire footing area with straw. Each of the three kids had to climb to the top of the Huge Pile of Dirt. Me with Bethy

Stan is checking out what will be his garage.  (Yes, his.  I get to park in it, but it will be his.) Looking toward the south. This is where the garage and the basement join together.  I'm not sure how this will work.
