Because concrete produces heat when it cures, and the heat can be trapped within the curing material, keeping it properly warm may only require covering it. However, when temperatures drop well below freezing, more elaborate measures may be needed.

For smaller homes, such as vacation and/or older homes, a foundation made up of a series of concrete piers can be common.

For a long time, getting a hard, durable building that had a variety of shapes meant carefully carving and cutting stone, which drove up construction costs and time. Concrete changed all of that, since it can be molded to fit any shape, then it will cure to be as hard as stone.

The ground can only absorb so much water at a time, which is why a dry well is a great solution for runoff and storm water. These passive drainage mechanisms need to be able to last, which is why they're often made of precast concrete.

Precast concrete, or manufactured concrete, goes back to 1905. That's when a city engineer in Liverpool, England named John Alexander Brodie starting making buildings with pre-cast panels. Oddly, Brodie is also known for another invention: The soccer goal net.
