Hey all! It’s been a few weeks since our last home update so I thought I’d share a little about what we’ve been working on! So much of what we are doing right now is totally not gram-worthy, but important nonetheless! So here’s what we’ve been up to:
Our foundation had the waterproofing done which basically looks like a black tar-like paint on it. It’s sticky, bubbly (really fun to pop…shhhh) and will protect our basement from water! I’ve never seen this process before so of course our contractor played a nice trick on us texting me “who did this!?” with a picture of the concrete all black and I about had a heart attack thinking something was done wrong. Thanks, Tim! Heads up, y’all.
Basement plumbing and piping went in. I’ve already fallen in the hole for the clean out. Job sites are fun!
Gravel and thick foam was placed to insulate under the basement slab. It’s all tucked in and cozy and will help with maintaining temperatures down there. And the concrete slab was poured!
We’ve been working on many other utility items as well. Our well pump is in and (almost) hooked up. Our electrical meter box is hooked up as well so we just have to get that inspected and then our power and gas company will be able to lay the lines so we can backfill our trench. Having water and electricity will be so nice!
Finally, today we had the backfill and ground work done. Lumber delivery is headed our way so we are on to framing!! Good stuff is coming!
