As you can see from the time-lapse video the basement got just a little bigger today. :) It is much deeper than a usual basement hole, since we need to make room for 575 cubic feet of foam going under and around the footings/slab/basement walls. The 53' semi trailer (2/3 full) came in this morning and the kids got a kick of the "new snow pile" in our back yard. All this provides a thermal resistance value of R-26 for the basement floor, compared to R-0 in standard code construction. The below grade walls will have a thermal resistance value of R-39 versus R-10 with code construction.
