Here are some newer photos of the construction progress at one of our designs in Cañon City, CO.
Below you can see the view from an existing berm down to the home site. The driveway will continue around to the left of the berm and into the garage that you can just see taking shape at the rightmost end of the foundation.
Below you can see the framing for the walkout basement walls taking shape. The windows and doors are all oriented to take advantage of the view in the picture above.
You can see below that like many houses on sloped sites there are many walls that are composed of more than one material. By stepping the tops of the more expensive concrete foundation walls and framing above grade in wood we save a lot in construction costs.
In order to minimize the depth of the basement foundation walls our client chose to put about half the main floor over a crawlspace. You can see the vapor barrier around the sides of the backfilled area. Not only good for saving money, this crawlspace will allow for access to plumbing for the kitchen and powder room.
