From the humble ground it will rise again


So we started again from the foundation...


The backyard. Do you like our inground swimming pool that's emptied for the winter?


They cut channels around the basement perimeter for drainage...


...and then they dug a bigget hole where the garage was and they poured some more concrete to make the slab for a garage that will actually hold two cars as well as a screened-in porch where the sunroom was. There was some kind of slab there before, but it was resting on some inadequate gravel and we wouldn't want that porch to shimmy around. Ben took this photo because he was interested in how they made this, so if you're into construction, I hope you like it because I have no idea what the hell it is.
