Pony Wall Time

Here's a sneak peek at what's been happening at the Little Blue House lately. Our crew has been busy pouring cement and working on the new foundation for the house! This was the next step following the house being jacked to a level position, new beams being installed underneath, and temporary cribbing being placed under the beams.

The picture below shows the pony wall under construction. It will help to support the house along its perimeter, as well as prevent critters from getting into the LBH from underneath. The insulation and vapour barrier will go a long way towards making us more comfortable there, too.

The whole area underneath the house is dry, for the first time in over a hundred years! Check out these posts and beams. I'm thrilled with the work so far.
