That's a big hole in the ground! Looking good. People don't generally build basements where I live -- usual construction is either slab-on-grade (common for commercial, and some residential, construction) or crawlspace. The climate is generally mild-to-warm, so we don't have to worry too much about providing a foundation below the frost line. Having masonry crack from expansive clay soil is more of an issue. I do sometimes wish I had a basement (usually when I'm crawling around in the crawlspace!)
