Basement Walls and Foundation Waterproofing

This was another exciting week in the build process!  The basement walls have been poured and the plumbing that goes underneath the slab has been installed.  The exterior basement walls were also treated with a waterproofing substance.

Below are some pictures of the basement walls from the progress made this week.

View from above grade (the area without the waterproofing material is the future mud room):

We are extremely excited about the plans for next week. Weather permitting, the slab will be poured early in the week and the framing will begin by the end of the week. Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE or LIKE our page on Facebook if you would like to be notified when new pictures are posted!
