Day 16 – Pre-inspection on footings

July 5, 2010

July 5, 2010 – After working part of Friday, taking Saturday off, and then working part of Sunday, the workers rested. The inspector was here a few days ago to do an inspection on the footings before the concrete was poured. Although not called out on the plans, the inspector requested that where the upper and lower sections of our foundation meet, it be tied together with the rebar. This is the section where the foundation transitions from the eight foot depth to the 16″ depth.

The workers will be back tomorrow to do a bit more work prior to the inspector’s return. We assume the concrete will be poured soon after that, and once that is cured, then the foundation walls will be framed and poured accordingly.
