The foundation has been poured!  "Foundation" seems to me to mean floor but I'm told it really means walls--the basement walls, to be exact.

Poured and evened off--with bolts sticking out.  Stan tells me that is how they attach the house to the foundation. Looking south I'd wondered how they were going to keep the cement from spilling out--and now I see the boards they used to cap off the ends.
