Foundations

Foundation forms for the garage are now up.

I don't think the corner foundations are really higher than the rest. They probably just didn't have enough of the shorter forms.

Scott and I have been wondering what the brackets on the forms were for. Turns out, they put these boards in them. The boards force the forms to be straight. You can now see them on all of the forms.

Its the incredible floating wall! It will have something to sit on when they backfill.

This is the change in footing elevation on the side of the screen porch. Still don't know why they did it this way.

Looks like this angle was not a clean 45 degrees like the jut outs in the dining room and library (this is the nook) so they got creative putting the forms together.

Unfortunately, the camera focused on the wrong thing in this picture. I was trying to show that the forms don't quiet line up with the footings here. There is a gap. I am guessing that when the forms are inspected, the inspector will make them widen the footing a bit. Or maybe not. I am no expert.

This looks like the entrance to a dungeon.

This and the next picture was taken from the top of the dirt mound.

Looks to me like they are basically done with the forms.
