The foundation of the house

Monday we started the foundation work on our house.

Our oldest son Joshua was able to get a much better bid than we were able to get. He and his wife flip houses and build new houses for their side business so he has a few connections.

They have been putting piers around all 4 sides of the add on and tunneling between the old and new slab. We can get it done for $11,000.00 instead of the $15, 890.00.

It is crazy to think you can not even put down new flooring if your slab is off a few inches. One step always holds up the next.

The noise that is involved is crazy when they are pounding in concrete piers to the tune of 17 – 18 per hole x 35 holes its crazy. When they start lifting the house the walls start cracking, eeking, squeaking and then the big BOOM like a earth quake that is when its being leveled.

The cats and dogs are neither one fans of this whole thing and today is our 6th day of doing this but they should finish up tomorrow.

We are looking forward to this being over with so we can start on the next projects.
