Backfill

After many days of putting in a french drain, raingutter drain, and really heavy plate steel window wells, we are back filling the foundation. The window wells will rust over time, and they weigh approximately 425 lbs. each. I imagine even with rusting they will last longer than me.

Next we will install a radon vent system under the basement slab, 2″ of XPS subslab foam insulation, radiant heat tubing and then the concrete basement floor.
