The concrete in the foundation finished hardening and curing.
The workers began taking off the wood frames.
The next day we were excited to be able to see the finished foundation.
The concrete looked gorgeous.
They also poured the floor and half wall for the shower room.
The concrete has a beautiful color and a shiny texture. Half of the foundation will be covered over with dirt, but the rest will be exposed, we're glad that we can show some of it.
It was fun to be able to go inside the basement and imagine the garage space, work space and storage rooms that we will have. Basements are rare in Japan, but we think it's very useful. The ceiling is a little low at 2 meters, but we hope it will be adequate without feeling claustrophobic.
