Filling out the Forms

Reaching ever upwards, the forms for the soaring driveway retaining wall are almost complete, and the #5 rebar is also gradually extending both vertically and horizontally - vertically for the basement walls, and horizontally for the basement slab.

Having passed our second inspection this morning (yippee!), we are now ready to pour some concrete. Not tomorrow, as I'd hoped, but on Wednesday morning, and I plan to be on site to record that thrilling moment. As far as I know (which is not very far!), we'll be pouring the foundation walls (below the basement slab), the middle structural wall support, and the driveway retaining wall. After leaving the concrete to cure for a day, we should be able to remove the forms on Thursday and actually see the first above-grade wall.
