The foundation was waterproofed, insulated and stoned this morning.

Above is the insulation around the front of the house and the front porch supports.
Above is the insulation on the back of the foundation (north side of the house). You can see two of the exposure windows.
This is a picture looking inside the western most exposure window on the north side of the house. As you can see there is a beam that has to be about 3 feet from the exposure window. You shouldn't be able to see much of it when all is said and done, though (unless you're looking for it).
This is the insulation gradually going up the western wall from the exposures in the back to the front of the house where the den/playroom will be.
This is looking inside the basement from the exposure window on the west side of the house. What you see is the two footings on the far side of the house.

Inspections were called in for tomorrow (this is routine and happens often at different stages). Backfill is scheduled for Thursday. The trusses and floor joists and possibly the first lumber load should be dropped on Friday, and the rough carpenter should start work on Monday.
