Solid Footing!

On Thursday July 2nd, our forming contractor (Chico’s Forming) came in and poured concrete into the forms for the footings for the exterior walls of the house. They used a special concrete truck with a conveyor belt type device to move the concrete from the truck to the rear of the house, where they then filled wheelbarrows and poured the footings. Steel rebar was placed in the poured footings where they will tie into the bench footing. Next week they are supposed to come back, erect the forms for the walls and pour the walls and the bench footing at the same time.
