I wanted something inside the house rather than having to run through the storm to the shelter. The water table is around 5' deep, maybe a little less here depending on recent rains, hence no basements.
Oh well, one more reason my next home will be a monolithic dome.
We need to talk. PM me tonight or tomorrow.
In the mean time, please do not cut your foundation. Hit a cable, and there is a good chance someone dies.
Imagine the pull string at the top of a dry cat food bag. Now imagine the cable is the string under 30,000 psi. Not a pretty site. Doesn't alway happen, but I have been there when it does.
You can trust me, I am you friendly Licensed Homebuilder in Texas.
