Garage Pour Complete

During deconstruction, it became apparent (via cracking) that the existing concrete carport was sitting on a few inches of air. Not good. Build decided, therefore, that it would be best to repour the garage foundation and footings at the same time we did some minor touch-up pouring around other parts of the foundation.

This phase was unexpected and added several thousand dollars to the cost of the project, but the folks at Blackhawk Concrete Construction, R. Leonard & Sons, Island Concrete Cutting, and Cascade Concrete Sawing ended up getting it done in only a few days, as framing began in other areas of the house.

There wasn’t a lot to see on the webcam for this phase of the process because the garage area is blocked by a big metal container, so it will be combined with the framing stage, for timelapse purposes.

    Is it just me, or are the date stamps on these posts coming up weeks in the past compared to when they’re actually posted on the site?

    The Tim: Nope, you’re right. I’ve been slacking on my posting frequency so I backdated the last couple of posts by a couple of weeks. Not sure if that’s a good idea or not, but I’m trying to keep things sequential and relative to when they actually happened.
