house on a rock


the foundation is paramount to the home. without a strong, steadfast foundation, a structure will not endure the test of time.

"He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built." Luke 6:48

let it pour

the skies cleared up enough this morning for the concrete guys to give the green light. it has been raining almost every day for the past two weeks, and the weather just was not consistent enough to pour. however, with a small opening this morning, we were able to get the concrete down. after some time to cure, the framers will come next.

finishing up foundation before pour

the preparation for the foundation is almost finished. the under foundation rough is complete, the void boxes are in, the rebar is in place. just some finishing work, an inspection by the engineer, and we are ready to pour some concrete. since it is a one story home, the foundation is pretty large. rain, rain stay away!
