Week 5: Footings/Masonry Walls
With todays pour we finally got out of the ground! 40 + yards of concrete went into the footings and by the afternoon, the masonry crew had begun to set the first course of block. I spent an hour with the concrete sub in order to cross check the interior dimensions of the house. The exciting part is that now you can see the overall footprint of the iT House taking shape. It is always hard to visualize things by simply looking at the string lines, but once you have a piece of the building going up, the form begins to materialize.
