A waterproof coating was applied to the exterior of the masonry foundation walls that will be underground. As electrical and plumbing rough-ins completed, fill dirt was brought in and compacted using a vibratory tamper. This gets the slab ready for final preparations for pouring concrete.

Upcoming Week Look Ahead:

  • Finish underground electrical rough-ins and inspections
  • Slab backfill and fine grading
  • Slab form-work and preparation for concrete pour
