After planning for this moment since 2009 we are finally here. We are so happy and it is a dream come true. We couldn’t ask for better weather and are enjoying staying in our camper. We got here Wednesday and we didn’t waste any time getting started on our home, the basement contractor arrived the next day and got the basement surveyed, excavated and the footings poured.
The walls are supposed to be poured tomorrow and once they are poured is when I start doing the waste lines that will run under our slab.
What I thought was a great idea was the forms that are used on the footings. They are perforated and hollow so they also act as drain tile.
The slotted slits in the forms allow water to enter and follow that over to the pipe that goes to day light to drain all water that gets around or under our foundation.
The basement contractor has also put under the footings a short 4″ white pvc pipe where our waste line hooks up that will go to the septic system. They also put in a 2″ pvc under the footing and this is where our water line will go through.
That’s it for now and will keep you all up to date on our progress.
