Days 3, 4 and 5 - the basement and foundation walls

Last Thursday the forms for the walls were set up. Friday they poured the walls and on Monday they removed the forms and dug out around the whole thing for the drain. Here are some of the pictures. I didn't take any on Friday since it looked exactly the same on that day as it did on Thursday (only with cement in the forms, which you can't see anyway, other than on the very top).

After the forms were removed:

I'm not positive but I think tomorrow (which is Tuesday in my world-I'm posting this well after midnight) they will finish up the drains, put the outside waterproofing on the basement/foundation walls, and maybe pour the basement and garage floors. Or at least get everything ready to pour the floors.

I never realized the underneath part of the house took so long to make.
