The foundation is almost complete with the pouring of the stem walls happening tomorrow. The foundation contractor has been nice to work with and when items have come up, he's called me on my cell to ask how we want it done. He has had some good suggestions also.
Next week we will let the foundation cure and then get the brother-in-law back out to backfill the lot and foundation. I have also hired the well pump contractor and they will be starting on Monday or Tuesday with the installation. This means that I need to get my electrical permits on Monday and run some conduit for him. I am learning quite a bit about planning and timing.
Attached are some pictures showing the foundations of the home and the shop. The house is a 2,589 sq. ft. ramble with a 931 sq. ft. three-car garage and the shop is 1,200 sq. ft.
By the way, I think we have found our new framer and his price is very nice. All he does is framing and he can get in and out in about two weeks. This was a nice surprise.
