And prepared the floor for the pour.
The contractor explained to me the plastic is a moisture barrier. It helps with dampness in the basement. The rebar is to reinforce the bearing walls.
Truck number one shows up.
I thought they got dangerously close to that cement coming down and believe me, it was coming down hard.
Truck number two.
These guys worked so hard yesterday spreading and smoothing that concrete.
Even the company owner worked hard. He's in the blue on the right side of the 2x4. Dad came out to watch with me and said, "what's he doing working that hard, he's the owner?"
Now this I couldn't believe! Dad and I were sitting on the swing chatting. The trucks were gone.
What's he doing?
We had to walk around and take a look. They gently threw those pieces of Styrofoam down, from standing up above....then they gently lowered themselves down on the Styrofoam pieces. Unbelievable! They smoothed the edge of the wall all the way around the house.
We were impressed.
While the three guys put on the finishing touches to the floor, the others laid out the garage.
They started digging the footers for the garage. They poured the footers yesterday afternoon, I missed it. I don't even think they took a lunch hour. Today they will pour the garage walls. I was told the basement crew will be done this week and the framing crew will start this week.
