Construction – Roughing in the Drains & Capping Foundation

After an unseasonable period of rain and a broken foot, works are back underway. The foundation walls are finished and the spaces in between have been filled loosely with soil to provide a surface to walk on while the walls go up. The lose fill will be allowed to settle before being tamped down to provide a base for the floor.

First order of business was to rough in the floor drains and sewer pipes into the foundation wall. The small oversight of not putting these in while the foundation walls were going up was quickly rectified. Next a cement cap was added to the foundation walls to provide a level base for the walls and act as a bit of a moisture barrier. Gaps are visible where the eucalyptus poles are going to be fixed to the foundation.
