Building Our First House - Waterproofing, Backfill & Foundation Poured + Progress Pics

Hi Beauties!
Just a few progress photos of our home construction. Last week they waterproofed the foundation walls, did the plumbing in the basement and backfilled. I was especially excited to see everything after the backfill, because we can finally get a sense of how big our house will be, and what size yard (or lack thereof haha) that we are looking at ;) 
Early this week, our foundation was poured! Which means framing should begin sometime in the next week, so excited!
The builders are running about a week behind at this time, so please cross your fingers for us that the weather stays nice and dry so that they are able to catch up and we can avoid crazy loan lock fees!

  9. It is going to be really great to see the photos once you are finished. You guys are smart to do the waterproofing on your foundation and basement while you're still building. That will really be such a benefit in the long run. There is nothing worse than having cracks in your foundation. http://www.hillsidelandscapingak.com/foundation-waterproofing

  12. it can turn into a serious problem. One can’t be prepared for every scenario that can cause havoc to one’s home or business. However it’s always good to have a plan for what to do if the inevitable happens. Especially if you live in a flood zone.flood repair in Ashburn Virginia
