Footing and Stemwall

This week (10/26 - 10/30) Happy Halloween!!!

-Monday: We stripped off the forms on the inside of the footing, and we all were assigned our first weekly duties. Devin is the safety foreman, John is the cameraman, Dan is keeping track of weekly progress, and Dillon is keeping the trailer clean.

-Tuesday: We put the ARXX insulating stemwall blocks on the footing, this included adding rebar to the inside for tensile strength.

-Wednesday: We scraped concrete off of forms, built a window frame, and made sure that the ARXX blocks where level

-Friday: Assembled scaffolding, put the window frame in place, and prepared to pour the stemwall.
