The week started out with level soil within our retaining walls. The soil was then dug up, and plumbing run under the ground, and buried. The soil was flattened out again.
After that, shallow channels were dug in the slab in a regular grid - which will create a thicker section of concrete in that area, an in-ground beam.
On Wednesday and Thursday the plastic moisture barrier and reinforcing went in, ready for the concrete to be poured.
The concrete was poured on Friday, and we were walking around on Saturday. It seems much bigger now that the concrete is in, and the finished levels have emerged from the dirt.
We are really excited, now that the ground work is nearly all done, we will get to see some walls soon.
It's interesting living so close to the project - we see it every day, so the progress seems to be more gradual. I think if we only checked on it once a week, the progress would seem more rapid, because we'd be noticing a week's worth of changes all at once.
This week features some action shots of me, looking at things. Enjoy!
