Foundations Completed on the 100K House Project


Foundation Wall Forms in Place and Ready to Pour Concrete

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.
