Before we get started on framing, we need to repair the foundation.  In this case, we needed to actually remove and replace the foundation.  We decided to lift the house up a little to make room for removing the old foundation and installing the new one.  Some timing info:  We got the house lifted on May 5th.  Got all the old concrete by May 8th.  The backhoe guy was here on May 13th.  We got the forms started on  May 15th.  We poured concrete May 22nd and got the forms off the same day.

It may not look like much but it's the first day the plumber was here and this will be a drain and vent for the kitchen sink.

The start of our sewer lines

Both bathroom sinks will drain here.

When we first started this remodel I was thinking I could do lots of the plumbing. After looking at this, I'm glad I am paying a professional!

Getting some copper in there. This is the guest bathroom sink and behind is the master bath sink.
