Warm Toes and Somewhere for the Flushes to Go

The forms set for several days and were removed, leaving us with bea-u-ti-ful concrete walls!  The plumbers laid some pipe (ha ha) and then we were ready for some insulation in the floor. 

I am amazed that they know where to put things! 

Pretty sure this is the floor drain in what will become our mechanical room.

And the ever-important sump pump.  

The two lines that jut off to the right run over to the bathroom.
The basement floor was insulated with foam then the water lines were laid for the in-floor radiant heat. 

By this point, we'd already realized this house-building process would include a lot of changes, edits, them what you will...they would be plentiful.  :)
Although we'd mentioned our long-term plan to finish additional square footage in the basement, they hadn't run the tubing in the future space (the dirt section at the bottom of the picture below).  

We also learned that any suck edit, change, adjustment causes delays in the schedule.  So, instead of pouring the following day, the tubing guys had to return and add more orange stuff.  

The following Monday, a huge Mack truck arrived with a huge pump and dumped a huge amount of concrete.  Huge.    

After the floor was finished and smoothed, they poured the stoop and the garage floors. 

Pouring the stoop.

If I were to do it over, I would've left the stoop hollow and utilized the space for more storage.  It would've cost us another door and we probably don't need more space...but being as I'm so obsessed with space utilization, it'll forever bug me that we 'wasted' this space. 

I'll get over it.  I hope.  ;)
