How tall are the walls, 4', 8'?
No. Like I said they laid down stone too, with pipes sticking up out. I'm pretty sure this house won't have a basement.

The "filling it back in with dirt" kind of throws me off, but the rest of it sounds like a slab-on-grade foundation. Not all that uncommon really, maybe just not typical in your locale.

Yeah, I figured. Now they started the building, and this house is going to make mine look smaller than it already is.
