Foundation, Day 1

The masons had to finish their previous job and worked only part of the day today. The part of the foundation shown above is the left wing of the house on the downhill side and is about half of the house’s total footprint. This downhill side is where the foundation is highest, and it’s where my half basement will be. No blocks have been laid yet on the right-wing uphill side of the foundation. The uphill side will require only five courses or so of blocks. The wall above has not yet reached its full height — 7 feet 8 inches.

The part of the foundation in the photo is for the kitchen, nook, entry way, and stairs…

… which I’m calling the left wing of the house.
