As you can see the excavating continues on this project along the shores of Lake Champlain. First thing next week the footings will be poured. The entire weight of the foundation and everything associated with the house will rest on these footings; it is critical that they be correct. Lets face it the footings will support several hundred thousand pounds of foundation and house. We had better get it right! After the footings are poured the concrete walls will go up in preparation for the house arriving in about six weeks. Who knows, by then we might go for a swim in The Lake.
