Finally- The rains have stopped- We can continue with construction

After many long weeks of intermittent rain and many interruptions, the forecast finally has some sun to offer. Today, the rebar and formwork for the garage and retaining wall footings have been set and concrete will follow on the spot. This requires a good deal of coordination to allow for sleeves for all the openings through the walls (water, sewer, graywater, electrical etc.). Drilling through hardened concrete is much much more difficult...
After the footings are poured, framing of the first floor walls can commence and the building can finally take shape...
The picture shows the first floor subflooring with the stair hole and the formwork for the garage footing in the background.
