Days 4 and 7 (5 & 6 were the weekend) found us continuing to work on the footer. Rebar was set in the hole that was dug previously. Due to the amount of weight that will be on the walls, the sub-contractor put in extra rebar. The pieces sticking up are for the block to sit over.
This is not common for most houses. We need the foundation to be extra sturdy and to stay put. A little extra money up front will save us in the long run.
