We have a new foundation slab!

But first, here are pictures of the extra structural mesh that is now buried in concrete. There are rods inside the old block wall that tie the existing house foundation to the new slab. Concrete was poured inside the existing block wall up to a height of about 10 feet at each of the tie-in locations. These features help with the stability and structural integrity of the slab.

The day of the pour!

The trucks brought concrete to this machine, which pumped it through a large black hose to the site in the back yard:

We had a good view of the activity through our sliding glass doors:

The tallest guy holding the shovel is our contractor, Ivan:

Finally, the finished slab with the forms removed.

We are expecting to see walls going up in early May!
