the foundation is done

On Friday, the front of our house looked like this.

Today it looks like this.

The back looked like this.

And now it looks like this.

Let the framing begin!!


  1. Do I understand correctly that this will be added footprint to your house and that you don't have a basement?

    Looking good - I can't believe you consider this 'small renovations' ;)

  2. It's coming along! Keep up the good work!

  3. that's some interesting siding underneath the stucco. what's that all about?
    wow! how exciting to have all that space for your kitchen!

  4. Whoohoo! Looks like you are making progress!

  5. Wow, definitely looks like a lot of progress is being made...congratulations!

    The additional square footage is a concrete slab with no crawl space. We had to have an engineer sign off on it as we tied it in to the existing foundation, which DOES have a crawl space. (Not a basement, though.)

    It's all relative when it comes to "small renovations." With our previous house, we went through Phase 1 and Phase 2 of renovations, adding a grand total of approx. 800 sq ft. So this renovation, in comparison is small. ;)

    I asked John about the crazy diagonal siding. He said that that's they way they did it before plywood became the norm. Crazy, huh?
