So you’ve been looking for some land and you find a piece of land that you like, kind of like what we have here. So where do you go from this land which is raw, to the finished house? We start out by building a house pad. Let’s look at one… 

If Your House Could Talk Foundation Pad

So let’s take a look at the pad. Now there’s a couple of ways to build a pad but the primary thing you’re trying to do is get the pad level in order to build a foundation on top of it.

So once you’ve got it all level then you can come back and you can bring in some extra fill if needed because you want to make sure that you slope away from the foundation.
