These are pictures from June 2010. Finally with the footings poured we can get to work on the
foundation. We begin by stripping the forms and starting to work with ICF.
|June 1st, 2010 - With the footings poured, we begin stripping the forms.
|June 2nd, 2010 - Continue stripping forms. The cats think the footings are cool.
|June 4th, 2010 - We finally get a door on the bathroom - no walls, just a door.
|June 11th, 2010 - All the forms for the footings are stripped. We start laying out
and installing kickerboards to hold the ICF in place and then the ICF itself.
|June 13th, 2010 - We continue to load ICF into the hole. A gopher thinks the ICF
is cool and he can hide. He'd better leave before we pour concrete.
|June 14th, 2010 - We work around the windows and get the first course of ICF done.
We install rebar and start the second.
|June 25th, 2010 - Continuing to work on the second course. We need to multistrap and
glue the corners.
|June 26th, 2010 - Continuing to work on the second course. We put on wooden strapping
when we need filler blocks.
