Week 2 Progress Update

25 10 2011

The foundation was completed this the past week.

After much digging the wood forms were installed using plenty of foundation bolts and anchors along with two double rows of rebar running through each section near the top and bottom.  (Photos 1-3)

There was an inspection on Thursday morning to ensure everything was done to code, and on Friday the concrete was flowing.  It took about 5-6 hours and 2 truck loads of concrete.  (Photos 4-6)

The concrete set over the weekend, and on Monday all the wood forms were removed and saved to reuse during framing.  (Photos 7-9)
