Foundation forms.

The crew started setting foundation forms today….and all was well.

Until I measured the windows which were set too low on the wall. This is why, as an owner builder, I take the time to double check these things as they are much easier to fix before the concrete is poured.

In their defense, the crew looked exhausted after a long day in 90-95 degree heat. Mistakes can happen, and if they are caught early, it’s an easier fix. This looks like really hard work!

As I looked at the forms on the front of the home, I realized the finished floor elevation of the main level, great room, is about 6 feet above existing grade, which is a foot or so above what I expected, but will afford really great views of the Midway and Heber valleys from the great room and deck!

One side of foundation form walls set. After they build all the walls, they support and straighten them.

Rebar, rebar, and more rebar!
