Home Construction Week 8 Summary


We have the strongest foundation in California.  That’s what our architect told us after our soil guy told us we needed 91 10-foot piers.  In addition to piers, we also have a traditional “footing” — the cement walls you see in this picture.  So, we are doubly strong.  Ridiculously strong.  And, of course, ridiculously expensive.

There is a crew of 10 guys working everyday and they are making fast progress.  In preparation for the front porch, we checked out stone at Peninsula Building Materials.  The choices are overwhelming.  Ryan picked out his favorite 5 and I picked mine.  They didn’t overlap.  Hope he’s not insulted when I decide!

Schedule and cost:  no changes this week.

Mood:  Great!
