2. Digging the Hole and Pouring the Footings

The first step in building the home is digging the hole and pouring the footings. 

Before digging the hole we anticipated running into bedrock based on the terrain.  Sure enough, we hit bedrock about 8 feet down and found that the bedrock continued across the entire floor of the home (see below).  This home will be sitting on one sturdy foundation.

See the footings with the re-bar sticking out.  They are now ready for the foundation walls to be poured on.
