- Part 5- Foundation Walls get poured
- Part 6- Forming Bathroom Walls
This week the bathroom walls and porch pillars were poured and now we're working on rock. Lots and lots of rock. My hands are still tingly from compacting last night and the fun has just begun. Here's a look at what's been going on this week:
This is the monstrosity that will be the bathrooms. Everyone was so nervous about this pour, at the last minute I overheard the guys say, "what's our escape plan if this things start to go?" Thankfully, all went well and no escape plan was needed.
Here's the pillars for the front porch. I will be adding a vertical concrete finish later on.
My husband devised "something", I still don't get exactly how its going to work, but its to help center and hold the posts. I trust that he knows what the heck he's doing so I just pass him the tools he needs and quit asking questions (I usually get the usual, "stay in the truck" answer anyhow).
We also got the insulation for the interior of the foundation walls cut and ready to go.
Quitting time, nearly dark and we've been dumping and compacting for hours. We've got many, many more hours to go but soon, we'll have a floor. Very Exciting!
