Beautiful Foundations

I was in downtown Franklin today to pay our water bill at the City of Franklin complex. (We don’t live in the city limits [yet] but we do get our water from Franklin.) Anyway, they have a multilevel parking garage so I started up looking for a space. There were some narrow ones but I didn’t want to squeeze so I kept going up. Up up up. Finally I was almost to the open rooftop part when I found one to park in. I went in to the water office, paid my “spot cash money” and climbed the stairs again to the third level. As I found my car I looked out the opening in the wall and saw something that made the climb worthwhile.

I could see down into the foundations and basements in the construction site across the street. So, having my digital camera in the car where I always try to keep it when I go anywhere, I took some pictures. It’s not often I see building foundations as notable as these. If I had only seen them from street level I wouldn’t have taken notice.

One of these days I would like to build a good house on  a good foundation like one of these. And basements as nice and as deep as the ones enclosed by these foundations, I would love that.

Here is a view, a closer view and an even closer view:

These are just about the prettiest basements I have ever seen.
