construction
Outer wooden forms for footings are placed.
construction
Rebars are placed within footing forms, which step up from maximum footing depth, aligning with depth of existing basement footers.
construction
Concrete is placed in footing forms.
construction
After wooden footing forms are removed, reusable metal forms are put in place for foundation wall.
construction
Outer forms for foundation wall are nearly complete.
construction
I fabricate an insulated panel to be inserted into the formwork where an internal concrete wall would otherwise create a "thermal bridge."
construction
Rebars are placed in the formwork before the inner metal form is put in place. Note the rough positioning of one of the two insulation inserts.
construction
Final adjustments to formwork are made.
construction
Concrete is placed in foundation forms.
construction
Concrete formwork is stripped.
construction
I install rigid insulation on perimeter of concrete foundation walls; note insulation "insert" within concrete wall to eliminate thermal bridging through the concrete.
