In this time lapse, you will see the installation of the green 10 mil vapor barrier plastic sheeting. Then the rebar. And, finally the wood trim for the fine details of the foundation, such as front steps, inset for the brick skirt, and drop down to the garage. Looking forward to getting the concrete poured in a couple of days, weather permitting.
The rain let up for a bit. Our foundation guys finally had time to set the outer forms. Then surveyed, to make sure the foundation is within the proper setbacks on site. All good. But, its mid-December and looks like the construction guys are now gone for the Christmas holidays. We will be back at it in January.
Our geotech report recommended removal of native soil to three foot depth. Here’s the dirt work to refill with non-expansive soils, compact and prepare for foundation construction.
