Ready to Pour Concrete

Pex tubing laid over the tied steel in the basement
Last Friday Irwin the Radiant Heat Guy came over and laid the pex tubing over the top of the rebar in the basement, and now we're ready to pour the concrete for the slab. That's going to happen tomorrow - Tuesday - morning. Can't wait! After the pour, the next step will be to build up the rest of the basement wall ICFs, and then pour those prior to starting work on the main floor.

Glorious weather again in Pacifica
 Just as I was getting a little concerned at the slow progress, I got a new construction schedule from Rich the Contractor and we are now magically back on track for completion just before Christmas - which would be brilliant.

Will you have finished floors above the concrete, or are you going for an industrial look?

By my reckoning Steve the Minnie House will be completed before West Ham's first points of the season.........Matt D

The basement floor will be concrete, at least for a while. Party is already being planned! And yes, as long as we finish before May next year we should beat West Ham to our first points of the season. Thanks for pointing that out, Matt! As I write this boos are ringing out around Upton Park at the end of the first half against Oxford. Ugh.
