We’ve (Chance and the guys) have framed and poured the footer and the stem wall!!! God has been good to us – the rain has waited, on several occasions, until we were done. The “footer” is poured first, it holds the stem wall/foundation wall and the “stem wall” is poured separately, it holds the exterior walls and roof of my addition. This process has been very eye-opening and these guys have been great!! The framing on the stem wall comes off tonight and then we’ll start back-filling all that dirt tomorrow. The interior and exterior framing should start Monday – yahoooo!!
