Preparing for the slab

This week, everything is heading towards the goal of pouring the concrete slab for our house on Wednesday morning.  Yesterday, the crew was on site laying down plastic vapor barrier between the fill sand and where the concrete will lay.  The plumbing that we had seen over the weekend was complete and all additional plumbing within the rooms will be done in the wall.  The crew was also digging out under the load bearing walls and adding rebar to those areas where a deeper section of concrete would be poured.

Today, we expect an electrician to be by to put in a couple of floor outlets in the living room.  I assume that it’ll only be conduit of some kind installed.  After that, we should have an inspection and once that is complete, the pour should happen tomorrow morning.

I can’t say that this is an exciting week, but I know that once the concrete is poured, we can proceed with walls and that is extremely exciting.  More to come…
