Things are moving along in the basement. We decided to use a bench-footing technique to gain more headroom. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, “bench-footing” is similar to “underpinning” which are both basically just fancy pants construction words for the process of lowering the basement floor.
In our last post I mentioned that we’ve been biding our time until the windows arrive. As you know, up until now, we’ve primarily been focusing our construction efforts on the main living space of the house.
