Backfilled! Ready for SIPs


While we were practicing how to install a window in the basement, Leon Home Improvement was doing the heavy lifting, filling and tamping of dirt around the foundation.  Man, that’s a lot of dirt!  See the before and after photos.  So far we’ve had enough dirt to back fill.  I really hope we don’t have to buy more dirt!

After

The garage area (the cutout) will need to get filled by another 4 feet or so, because a concrete slab will be poured on top, compaction is necessary.  I pray for dry weather for the next few days.

SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) delivery is scheduled for next week!  I can’t wait for this to look “more like a house”.
