Now that the trees are cleared, it's time for the experts at R. W. Buff, Inc. to start the project. The first task was to prepare the foundation. We were hoping that the ground would be free of the big granite boulders so common in this area. The excavator was luckily able to make quick work of the foundation.
Footer Ready for Concrete
Since we were only going to add a crawl space, it didn't have to be too deep, and fortunately avoided any large boulders to stand in his way.
Block Walls Complete
Over the next few days the footers and floor were poured. Of course it rained like a monsoon the day after it was finished, so we had to wait a few extra days before the cement block could be laid for the foundation. Two men came and built the foundation in a single day. Not a bad day's work.
