Forming up the Stem Wall and Ready to pour concrete ... August 24,2005.
The site on September 1 ... the stem wall has been poured, and the plumbing is being roughed in. The nicely compacted soils have been ripped up again to put the sewer lines down the middle of the house.
September 9, the garage floor and entrance have been dug out and pea gravel is being laid in preparation for pouring our concrete slab floor.
September 13, visquene plastic and insulation to R-15 is put down over the pea gravel. The layering of pea gravel, visquene and insulation will hopefully keep the slab dry for the life of the home.
September 17, the insulation has been completed and the tubing for the radiant floor has been completed. We are ready for a floor.
September 21, 4 inches of concrete has been poured over the insulation and radiant tubing. It will take nearly a week to properly cure and it is important to keep the concrete wet.
