ICF! ICF! ICF! *

ICF - 16" x 4' x 12.5"
Some of the ICFs arrived on the site today (the remainder are still sitting in Rich the Project Manager's driveway), and the guys started the tricky task of building the steeply sloping foundation wall. As you can see, they had some work to do leveling the blocks, but when I visit the site tomorrow morning I'm confident that this wall will be complete. Once it's in place, the other walls shouldn't take too long, and with any luck we will be able to pour concrete into these polystyrene forms by the end of the week. Rain is forecast, though, so the weather may slow us down a little.

Rich and Hector study the foundation wall ICFs
* This is for my West Ham mates - the IFC (Inter City Firm) was a legendary bunch of hard nut Hammers from way back in the day. Come on you Irons!

Cas Pennant just beat up my ICF and left it for dead...

I sit next to Cass at the Boleyn - glad to see he's making good use of his summer break!
