Build Upon a Rock Mass- Part 4 Pouring Foundation Walls

Scroll down to content

So now that we have the ICF (insulated concrete forms) in place it is time to make them permanent.  What has taken us weeks to prepare for only took 5 hours to fill with concrete and complete.

Stats-

8 Friends helping was great- From directing the 9 Concrete trucks (Yup 9) to pouring and finishing, having more help is always a good thing.

9 Trucks- 87 yards of concrete and 5 hours later we were done.  It was sunny when we started and rainy when we finished.  The entire project went really well and we only had a partial blow on one of our cold joints due to it being a bit watery at the end of the truck.  But it is done and now a permanent part of the mountain.  Wow what a relief.
