Next step: waterproofing! It’s really not all that exciting, but is an important step in the process. The yellow part is the waterproofing material and covers everything that will be the basement. The area on the left side of the photo will be crawlspace so it didn’t need waterproofed. The stair step pattern (also the brick ledge) shows where the ground will be sloped. All of the yellow parts will be backfilled so you won’t see the walls once the house is finished. A view along the front of the house. All of this will get backfilled too.
