After 4 days of L and I working on the foundation, we are ready for backfill. What a load of hard work!
We will start backfilling on Wednesday July, 13th, but I still need to put together the drain tile (french drain) as well as drain pipe to route rain gutter drainage underground.
We will not back fill the north foundation wall, which is 58 feet long, until the floor joists are in place to help support the wall and not allow the pressure from the soil to warp the wall. The area around the window
wells will only get filled to the bottom as well, since I still have to build them out of steel plate.
