Safrane Construction and the crew were at the job site really early one morning to get started on the grade beam. By the time we got to the house, they already had the forms nearly completed.
Rebar is used to strengthen the concrete walls. The rebar is placed both horizontally and vertically to provide as much support as possible.
The wood frames are used to create the space for concrete to be poured.
It was nice seeing the crew on site because it gave us an opportunity to get a group photo! They were all happy to model the House Trade Built toques we had made up by Embroidery Vibe.
Next step – the concrete truck will be scheduled and the forms will be filled with concrete. Once the concrete cures, the wood forms are taken off and we will be left with the concrete beam on which the framing can go on. The strength of the rebar + piles = a garage that will not sink or shift.
Thanks guys for all of your hard work!
