Jun 11, 2024
We are laying the wood for the forms for this slab, because the

house

on the water must be beautiful, so it is 36 feet deep and 26 feet wide, on this side there will be a 10 or eight foot enclosed porch for a path and then a concrete pad on the back, we're going to pour it in two or three pours because it's going to have two inches of foam insulation underneath, we also have to wait for the plumber to come in rough. underneath after I do that we're going to lay down the foam bar the plastic all that stuff and pour some concrete so let's do that so I came here without my recording equipment all I have is my phone for today, so we're going to Set this all up, we'll put in the uh, we're digging around the perimeter to make a trench to make a deeper foundation, then we'll put in two inches of foam and rebar today and tomorrow we'll pour.
