This has been a really productive week at the house. First, the framing above the foundation wall was placed, creating a deck that will become the first floor. Then the concrete floor was poured over the existing gravel in the old basement (above). And finally, a trench was dug to place a superficial drainage system on the east side of the house. First floor framing is to begin next week, while some shoring up of the outwardly-moving north wall of the old structure is being done on all 3 levels.
