Foundation From Fibo Ceramsite Blocks

It was few weeks ago, while digging a trench around existing foundation I discovered missing foundation for one part of our rural house. Back then I quickly realized I will use Fibo ceramsite blocks to boost construction works. 

The other day I poured in concrete footing, and today was the day to add first Fibo ceramsite blocks over footing
