We have learned a lot about foundations lately. Apparendly, this is one in several steps getting to the complete foundation of our house. You have seen the first couple of steps. Now, this is called the “Stem Wall.” This is the outside retaining edge of what will be pieced together with the layers of the slab. Tomorrow, the outside metal frames of this short cement wall, into which concrete was poured, will be taken away. What remains will be the area in which the plumbing, pea gravel, liner, and then the cement slab will be fitted and poured to make the entire foundation. Isn’t it exciting!?!
