I wasn’t able to be there when they poured the concrete for the walls, so I only have pictures of the finished product. I’m usually a little worried when I’m not there to supervise, but everything worked out OK. I had come this day to lay down landscape fabric and stone around the foundation. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a mistake.The soil had not settled all the way, and several weeks later what once sloped away from the foundation sloped toward it. We had to redo much of the work. Anyways, here’s a few pictures from that day.
Here’s a view to the southwest.
This is one of the steel plates embedded into the concrete wall. These is where the shipping container corner blocks will be set and welded.
Landscape fabric and rock are being placed around the foundation. You can also see my neighbors dump truck and skid steer – very convenient.
This is a view to the south, and will be the view out of the picture windows in the cabin – minus the dirt pile of course.
