"So he called its name Rehoboth, saying, 'For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.' " Genesis 26:22b

Constructing the Basement

Digging the last of the basement

Leveling the ground with 6 inches of gravel for the walls to go in

The first load of pre-cast basment walls

Looking at the crane over the trees from the crest of the driveway

Several wall panels in place (The yellow pole is a brace)

Craning in the next panel

Hoisting!

Lowering into place

The last corner!

Easing it into place

Ta-da!

The walkout

looking toward the garage end

The first of four cement trucks

Pouring the slab

The completed slab, drying

Just in case you are wondering, the dirt is going to be filled in aound the basement. This is called backfill.
