Well then, it's good to note...

check out the forms.. and the wall/footing..
I chatted to my buddy who works for a pump truck company.. and he mentioned that all the big sites these days are pouring footing/walls at the same time... so we gave it a whirl. It was a LOT more setup.. but.. only had the truck there for 2 hours for the whole deal..and we even screwed up the concrete order. if we'd been bang on with the ammoutn, it would have taken no more then an hour..

So ya.. in the long run, big cost saving pouring them together..

In '81 I did my house's foundation and walls as a monolithic pour. It was three 8' walls and an alcove for the woodstove. The hard part was climbing on the forms guiding that hose from the pumper when pumping the concrete. But the results was very nice... and well worth the money for the pumper.

Glad to see your project, it's bringing back fond memories.
