Basement taking shape

More prep work was done today after the foam block was completely built up.  We now have planks around the basement walls for the cement pour planned for Friday.  Next week we will have more finishing work around the outside, plumbing for the drain tile, external insulation around basement walls and under the future slab.

Found this article interesting tonight regarding economics of green building (LINK).  Our thought has always been that the elimination of operational cost of heating and cooling in the long run pays for itself and provides such a comfortable living environment year round.

Due to camera mount failure no video today but check out the picture below.
