Basement Walls!

After the foundation footings had been poured, the crew came back to set up the forms for the basement walls, and to have them filled up with concrete.  These crews can get these forms up pretty quickly, they started in the morning about 8am and the walls were poured by the end of the day.  This included them dropping in four 5’x4′ forms to create void spaces in the walls where our windows will go.

After they pour the walls, they take the wall forms off and this is what we’re left with:

Then finally, after they get all the forms off, they apply the waterproofing tar-like stuff to keep any water from seeping through the walls:
