The Woods of Mt. Oak

We have finally poured the foundation, it was a great day with over 20 concrete trucks and over 200 yards of concrete. This is a picture of the pump truck getting ready to pump the concrete.


Here is a picture of the massive amount of steel wall panels that we had to fill up with concrete to create the foundation.


This picture below shows you what the concrete foundation looks like once the steel forms are removed. The concrete is now curing and will reach its maximum strength in approximately 28 days. By code, we must wait a minimum of 7 days before putting dirt against the foundation.

Here you can see the massive crane that we used to set the house steel.


The picture below shows the massive steel beams that are set in place and ready for the floor to be installed. Some of these steel beams we are using are 18″ inches tall and this size steel beam is unheard of with typical residential construction.


Here you can see that the steel beams are so large that they
can not be unloaded without the help of the crane.
