Today our builder started back on our site. It was great to see the project moving again. In the day our builder and his team (2 others) had put up all of the framing for the internal walls in the basement and all of the ceiling joists. It was amazing to finally see the actual rooms and the sizes. It was very difficult to imagine what it would look like when it was a slab of concrete. It is also looking bigger now that the rooms are going in.
We are now also getting a feel for where the first floor level will be. We knew it would be higher than the original ground level, but we didn’t know how high. I am not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but, from the original ground level it is about 5 feet higher.
