Preparing Interior Floor Slab for a Concrete Pour

Construction Progress Report:
by Adriana Botelno

This week we prepared to pour the first floor slab. We did some final leveling of the sand and placed electrical conduit in the sandy fill. After that we laid pink insulation and a grid of rebar that was held up in place by small concrete rebar chairs. Mikey and I put in the second support beam and began to cut nailer blocking for cabinets for later on in the house building project when the cabinets are installed. We also talked about how concrete is ordered in cubic yards and practiced using fractions and decimals.
