Friday evening, the work site is cleaned up, quiet and waiting for Monday morning when the carpenters return. This week the excavators came back and backfilled around the basement walls so it is now possible to get up to the first floor without crawling up a ladder.
After the backfilling the basement walls look like this. This is the "rough draft" of leveling the dirt, they will be back later in the process to do a more finished job.
Craig also built stairs to the basement so the plumbers and carpenters don't have to navigate by ladder to do their work.
We had a very heavy rain last night so the basement got some water on the floor and some on the walls.
Tune in next week for the first floor!
