Passed Inspection

Passed our final lift inspection. Yeah!

I went to the Home Depot to pick up the rigid insultation for the base of the slab. We almost forgot to add this in, but it is critical in that it keeps the heat from the radiant flooring from escaping in the area where the slab meets the CMU wall. Basically, the guys will just cut it up and slip into the area between the wall and the "French drain" behind the wall. After we finish with the drains and additional waterproofing, we will begin the backfill process.

Tomorrow we'll finish up the grout fill on the wall and start to work on the trenching for all of the utilities for the iT House. Before we do this though, 18" of soil will have to be removed and then recompacted to provide a stable base for the slab.

It's still looking like rain.
