If you’ve been following along on Instagram then you probably remember me mentioning that we added a basement at the last minute. We had a meeting with our builder a week before the foundation was supposed to go in to discuss the height of the house and options for the slope of the yard. Our yard slopes off toward the back left corner which meant parts of our crawlspace would be nearly 7 ft tall. We made the call to dig a partial basement which pushed our timeline back by about three weeks, but will be totally worth it in the end. It’s adding an additional 2,100 sf, but I’ll talk about our basement plans in another post!
Pouring the basement walls gave us our first real look at the footprint of our home. We are also able to see where the first floor will start.
