Carmen & Josh First Day Cottage

So we finally did it! After all of the struggle trying to get financing for this, and later dealing with the pesky Kingston Historical (or hysterical) Society, and then, the lengthy process of finding someone to excavate and the pour the foundation, we have finally stared. We will keep you posted as much as we can about our progress and have share in our adventures. Here are the first glimpses of what one day will be our house!

The girls really loved the machines and thought the big hole was really cool.

Pour the Footings

Footings are the structural part of the foundation. Ours were constructed of steel-reinforced concrete and the mold was made out of wood. The foundation was then constructed on top of the footings
