I am building my first home. Lucky me because it is in the woods! It is an adventure I surely will not forget.

Sub-slab #2 stone and footing drain tile.

These pics are from before the concrete guys came to set the forms for the walls. This is how the excavator finished his sub-slab stone work, put in footing drain tile, and stone over that. His work is pristine! I teased him that he left one stone on top of the footings. lol He is a true perfectionist demonstrated by his work.

Setting concrete forms

See in the pic above is a window sitting on the ground waiting for it's new home. There are four 
cedar-framed slider windows going in the foundation walls.

I left and visited a neighbor for a bit and then when I came back, the following pics show the progress. 

Above is a close shot of one of my windows in place between the forms. Nails hold them in place.

Concrete walls

The past week was quiet and then picked up today. Now everything is happening.
Concrete guys set the forms for the walls today!

I pulled in around nine hoping to catch them before they unloaded the forms and I was in luck.
