Guesthouse Foundation Progress

Although it turned really hot here this week, a lot of progress on the foundation for the guesthouse. There is about 1/3 of one wall remaining to be blocked and then the support for the front porch. Once the foundation is complete, it will need to be inspected. After that, framing will start which should move quickly.

Here are some pictures of the work in progress.

Looks like there is about a half day left to finish the blocks. Once the blocks are done, a footer plate of pressure treated lumber is laid on top of the block connected by bolts to the foundation. Drain pipes have to be laid around the bottom of the walls for drainage and a waterproof coating applied to all areas which will be underground. Once the foundation is completed and inspected, we can back fill around the walls and then the subfloor and framing work can begin.

At that point, the trenches for the electric and water service can also be completed so we can get those in place.

More as we make progress.
