It’s so awesome to go to the house and see multiple companies working all together to create this house. It was another busy day at the house with people in and out all day, progress being made. Does anything look different to you? The giant window is in from Humphrey Window and Door Store! The…

Once the floor cap was on the foundation, Bergen Excavation came in with a backhoe and completed the backfill. The cap on the foundation (floor truss system) and the increased strength of the foundation walls from the vertical rebar creates a locked system to support the weight of the dirt. Thousands of pounds of dirt are…
