Building the Foundation
The blocks are delivered and the footing is poured. On the diagrams it looks like a footing is a square block but they look different when they are poured. The first waste onsite is broken block but we kept it in a pile with brick from the demolition of the previous house. We used this as filler in the three porches around the house. We took the plans out and measured and found the back porch size was almost two feet short. It is not a bad idea to measure and catch mistakes before somebody builds something else on top of the mistake!
