The basement walls looked a bit higher compared to the neighbors homes but the contractor could only dig so low with a high water table. Also, we decided on 9′ ceilings which also add an extra foot than a traditional 7’10” basement height. But after the initial loads of fill were used around the walls, things are starting to look much better.

The garage was also filled in but there will have to be many more loads of fill to complete the grading of the property but it’s a good start!

Looking at the property from the road you can almost tell how it will look once the house is on the foundation.
