Exciting times ahead for you and your family. Sounds like the home builder is finally going to provide you with a home.
Always interesting to see how different parts of the country construct homes. Here in CT normally the footing is about 10" deep and 24" wide. About what you have. Not sure why, maybe labour cost, cement blocks are rarely used. I would say 99% are form filled concrete. Some of the newer ideas actually use Styrofoam forms that are filled with concrete. Strength and added insulation.
Sorry for my ramblings, best of luck on your new abode. Hope you're in it before teh heavy winter snows.
