At times it feels like things are going slow but we are moving forward putting all the unglamorous pieces together that make for a thoughtfully built home. Because we demoed the original slab-on-grade (SOG) we are able to add proper drainage, plumbing, and insulation beneath the basement floor. The time-lapse below shows our first forward progress. Foundation footers were formed and poured which will support structural walls. The perimeter underdrain consists of a perforated pipe that drains to the sump pump to prevent any future basement flooding. Then underground plumbing, insulation, and vapor barrier went in just before the new concrete SOG was poured.
