Tootsies

After the hole was dug and we finally obtained a building permit, it was time to start digging footings.  This digging basically consisted of digging so that the whole perimeter of the house was below some level.  Not sure what that level is.



As they dig further they found pure sand.  I mean all of our soil is pretty sandy, but this should be brought down to the lakeshore. 


The paths dug for footings made the house look like it was going to be tiny.

After the footings were dug, they put some wood forms for the actual footings to be poured.


And then we had our first cement.



And the house still looked super tiny.  Not sure how we are going to fit a whole house on that.


Next up, walls.
