|Our Future Home - Steeldust Meadows
These are pictures from September 2010. A MAJOR milestone. Now that the ICF is done, we brace it
all, form the rest of the house and pour the foundation. By the end of the month, the forms are stripped and we're
ready to pour the front porch.
|September 7th, 2010 - We cut beam pockets for the 2 x 10 wood beams.
|September 9th, 2010 - We start to lay out weeping tile through the garage.
|September 10th, 2010 - The sub floor arrives. We also get a load of gravel delivered
to cover the weeping tile.
|September 11th, 2010 - We place forms in the beam pockets and form up the garage.
|September 12th, 2010 - We start to brace the ICF for pouring and finish up the garage
|September 17th, 2010 - A MAJOR day. We get up early in the morning to finish the
scaffolding and ribbon strips around the top of the ICF. Concrete arrives and we pour 63 cubic metres in the
foundation. While we pour, we insert rebar, anchor bolts and 15mm dowels for the porch slab. There's not as many
pictures as we would like only because we were all so very busy.
|September 18th, 2010 - The concrete hardens quite quickly. We start removing the
forms the day after pouring.
|September 23rd, 2010 - All forms are stripped for the garage and cold room. The first
sills are attached around the cold room to start forming the front porch.
|September 26th, 2010 - The porch gets framed up ready for pouring,
