We have basement walls! Days 18-21

Squeal!! yes, over some concrete!

So happy to see these basement walls this afternoon, however the house looked tiny! I think that's what most people say so I'm sure it's just an illusion. It was really neat to be able to visualize the rooms. I was surprised to see how high the driveway is...I didn't expect it to have such a slope but it looks like it will be steep. Hopefully they can grade it and it won't be too bad.

The front

The back

The back left corner

My "bump out"- 6'x17' addition to the side of the house,
this allowed a jack and jill bath on the second level and
a larger guest bedroom with a better layout for a
3rd bathroom. (oh, and obviously a bigger basement)

If we were on the first level, we'd be looking at the dining room on
far left and straight ahead will be the kitchen

This is the driveway, I'm assuming it will be filled in
and we'll drive in at the base of the first level...seems high.

Next up I'm guessing is plumbing rough-ins and beams to start framing.


  1. Seeing our basement walls for the first time was like seeing the ocean for the first time lol...Congrats!

  2. It's so exciting when it finally starts! You'll see so much progress from now on. Congrats!

  3. We felt our house looked tiny, when it was just the basement walls too. But once the frame goes up and rooms are framed it looked much much bigger. Our SR said it will look even bigger once the dry wall is up. We'll see,
