How Firm a Foundation

"Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God" (D&C 88:119).

This was our house November of 2007. The footing is engineered to support a small skyscraper (almost). It's really strong. There are cages of re-bar inside that cement. The walls are poured cement, too. The roof trusses are 2x12s with hurricane straps bolting them on to the house. Gene wanted this to be the 'forever house'. It's not going anywhere.

Now, what goes on inside it may not always be so planned and organized. But, there's nothing I wouldn't do for my family.
