It's been some time since our last post. A busy week and some much needed rain slowed progress a bit, and kept the documetarians away from the farm. But look at this! The trenches are filled, and some pipe looking things are sticking out of the floor! These are the bottom-most connections to the various drains that will occupy the bathrooms, laundry room, and kitchen. Next step is a lovely concrete basement floor, then on to the framing! The black stuff along the foundation is a waterproofing material, and the pink stuff is rigid foam insulation. This will hopefully keep our footsies from freezing in the mud room during those lovely Iowa winters.
