Building my house on Guemes Island
Part 4: Foundation

June 6, 2022: 10 weeks and 3 days after submitting my paperwork, Skagit County finally approved my building permit revision application. I immediately called my foundation contractor, who was free the next day. His crew came over and in half a day built all the forms for my foundation footings. Inspection on Friday, then pour the concrete footings next Monday. WooHoo, time to build my house!
