foundation week: thursday

stuart tamps and bevels

this was the day i planned to start laying reinforcing bar and wire mesh. but, jade and i discovered early in the day that something was amiss. after a few minutes of earnest denial i realized i was going to have to move all the post footings by hand because i'd taken a critical measurements from disagreeing drawings. lesson to myself: always make sure drawings have the same footprint!

luckily we still had two days before the pour. it did take the entire day to move all the footings. i also took time to re-tamp the flat part of gravel infill and to bevel the walls to a 45-degree angle so that the slab would have a gradual transition from perimeter beam to interior slab.
