You may think the first step to a well-built house is the same as the first step to a well-built relationship; laying a good foundation. Guess what? You're right! However, like any a good relationship, much preparation is involved before that foundation can be successfully laid.
Our first step was to strip and level the ground…
…and dig trenches everywhere concrete needed to be poured. Then, we went through the steps of adding wooden forms into the trenches. These act as a mold for the concrete as it dries.
The result doesn't look very pretty, but it's all an integral part of the process. Again, sounds like a relationship, no?
