The foundation is poured, the molds removed, waterproofing done I think, and under basement plumbing started.
Front of house looking directly at the front door. Notice the little ledge on the walls to the left and right of the front door...that is part of the reason brick costs more then other sidings...the foundation is wider where the brick is to create the little ledge to hold the weight of the bricks.

looking across back, sunroom nearest, family room, morning room
waterproofing - anyone know what all this is?
More Plumbing - what is that round item
Croquet anyone? That will lead to the drain at the bottom of our walkout from the basement.
Garage wall - Anyone know what the notched(red arrows) out section on the wall is. The other side wall of the garage has the exact same pattern. Do they run Ibeams across the floor of the garage?
Wall without the waterproofing is the outside wall of the walkout
Wall of Solarium and more plumbing
Above I said waterproofing finished(I think) because I am not sure if there is more to it. I know there will be a french drain around the inside wall and I thought they usually do some sort of stone and drainage pipe along the outside base of the foundation, but not sure if that is done everywhere. Also not sure what those vertical sections of waterproofing are and why they are only in certain spots...like under each of what will be the basement windows.
I still don't know what that flexible tube under the footer is for. The inside piece is still there and the outside piece is covered in dirt now.
In other news, our sales rep called and said the plans won't get approved with our custom Hybrid water heater because of the number of bathrooms we have. The capacity is only 40 gallons and code requirements say we must have an 80 gallon capacity for the number of bathrooms...so back to the decisions...we can get a standard electric water heater, a high efficiency version, or a gas tankless water heater...anyone have any suggestions? Anyone already have a tankless water heater...does it work well?
