Since last week, the forms for the foundation walls have been built, leveled, measured, and readied for today–concrete pouring day! The pumper truck arrived at 7:15 am. As I write this (11:15 am) they are still pouring but they have almost filled the forms to the top. The guy with the pumper truck wears a strapped on remote control to control the hose through which the concrete is flowing.
I shot this little video of this “fascinating” (as Mark S. remarked) procedure. I did a little narration but not loudly, so turn up the sound!
Tomorrow they will take off the forms and we will be ready to smear on tar to waterproof. Jack says that this is a very enjoyable process and I will love it (tongue in cheek!).
The bank has still not approved the construction loan so now we are out of our money (the little we made on the Bonsal House) and we are bugging the bank for a closing date. We do have the waterproofing materials in hand, but after that comes the steel and we have not felt financially comfortable having that fabricated yet.
It feels like Fall is in the air (much cooler).
