So, after seemingly countless steps leading up to this point, we finally installed the ground level concrete floor. Now we're getting somewhere! Of course this meant another appointment with the goliath concrete pumper.
First, as you saw, we filled in around the forms with dirt. Then prepped the area with a layer of plastic sheeting.
Back again! This time the pumper was used to create the floor of our rental unit, garage, and home office. Looking good!
Finally smoothed out and drying, the foundation is complete.
If you look closely, you can see that the concrete floor slab is poured in sections. This allows time to fill and smooth without the concrete drying before you can finish the surface almost to a polish. Now that I can better see the floorplan, I can't wait to finally start building the living space in this house!
