Seems typical, I moved this past August and my foundation was poured around Feb.

Anyone know the 'impact' to have foundation done during freezing temperatures? Perhaps I should Google it : )

they dose the cement with chemicals to make it cure in colder weather. they will either put straw on top or cover it up and heat it with propane. depends on the company. everything should be fine. might be some shrinkage cracks but a lot of the new houses have that and doesn't affect the structure.

Looks like Google maps finally updated the streets for south Avalon neighbourhoods. Satellite images are still very dated.
