The Final Pour! April 9th, 2008

Here are some pictures of the final pour. This shows the long arm of the pumper truck, pumping concrete up into the forms on the 2nd floor. We now have concrete all the way up to the eaves! The metal poles you see sticking up above the walls are the supports for the ICF blocks. These supports will be taken away when the concrete hardens. In the picture at the bottom, you can see the top of the wall, with the concrete inside the form. Also inside the forms in this picture, you can see four 2x6 boards nailed together above each window frame.

Next week, the framers can put on the roof! Yeehah!
