What a harsh reminder of early beginnings, these pictures I discovered here. Fond memories actually …..
I dreamed I could do it all myself!
Fortunately there were contractors willing to help!
Foundations were dug
and filled with reinforced concrete designed to take the load of a double height building.
A deep hole was dug amongst the natural rock.
It would become a french drain serving two households.
with a second compartment for soapy water drainage,
Then floor height walls were built on the foundations and filled with gravel.
and time to lay the underground electrical conduits ….
Section for section the concrete slabs were laid.
Until the floor was complete, a rough finish.
and so it stood this way ….. for a very long time.
We planted trees, in the meantime.
