It has been a very busy week out on our property. At the end of last week, our foundation was nearly complete and over the weekend, Harry (the builder) began putting fill into the block foundation. On Monday, several more loads of sandy fill were loaded into the foundation and everything was brought up to a level and compacted.
After the fill was mostly complete, the plumbers began digging the fill back out and running the wastewater pipes and supply lines for water in the slab. As of today, it looks like almost all the plumbing in the foundation is complete. I see a few supply lines missing, but the plumbers may just not be finished, yet.
The next step is getting the electricians to run the conduit that they will use to bring power to the breaker box, a couple of floor outlets in the living room. After that, one side of the foundation needs to be blocked (this is the side they are using to load in fill dirt) and then I think we are close to being ready for the slab to be poured. So things are coming along. Below are a few photos from this week’s progress.
