The end of week two of construction marks the completion of the foundation. Tino surprised us and came out on Saturday evening after to wrap up the foundation work. In a matter of hours, he and one helper installed insulation, backfilled the entire site and leveled the interior of the foundations in preparation for slab work this week.
This week is all about the slabs. The plumber and electrician will get there first visits to the site to prepare the utility runs under the slab. Once that is done, it’s time to insulate and install wire meshing for the slab. The plumber will come out once again to install the PEX for the radiant system to the wire mesh and we will pour by the end of the week. This is a critical week as the SIPs are being delivered next Monday and we can not miss that deadline.
This marks the end or our first flickr construction set of images – 100K Excavation & Foundation Walls. All of the images from this set can be seen below and tomorrow we’ll start the next construction set devoted to the slabs.
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
