2011-2012 House Well Under Way

As of yesterday the foundation of the 2011-2012 house is complete.  All that remains is stripping of the forms and back-filling and then the framing can commence.  Over the past couple weeks:
  • Admiralty Construction has graded and leveled the site
  • Footings were laid-out, formed, reinforced, and poured
  • Stemwalls were formed using insulated concrete forms (ICF's) and reinforced
  • And yesterday, Aggpro brought out their pump truck and we placed 10 yards of concrete for the stemwall and set anchor bolts for our framing.  
Next week a lot of visible progress will be made with framing beginning.  The students performed very well on the foundation phase and look forward to next step.
