We have a basement...kind of!

Well, we really have a giant hole in the ground!

Looking from the patio area towards the front of our house
The graders finished digging out our basement, and you can really start to see how the house will look. We will have a poured concrete foundation.  This means that, right now, everything is a few feet larger than the house will actually be.  To build the foundation, they will pour cement walls and then come back and fill dirt along their exterior.

Looking at the kitchen side of our house (you can reference our plans here)

Looking at the Master Bedroom side of the house (you can reference our plans here)

To end this post, I will leave you with the song that has been stuck in my head each time I look at our giant hole in the ground.  When I was kid, I loved the book Holes.  So clearly I'm loving that the movie theme song is the current theme song to my life!
