Our Project – Week 6

Another busy week! The whole of the ground floor was laid. This consisted of basically propping up a floor of special concrete blocks, and then filling it with concrete. As you can see, the first RSJs forming the main structure of the house were welded onto their base-plates.

Our Project – Weeks 4 & 5

A lot happened during these two weeks, while we were in the south of Spain on holiday. The carcass to contain the concrete was finished, with the iron reinforcing located inside. It was then filled with concrete. A day or two later the wooden casing was removed and the RSJs located. The second set of footings at a higher level for the back of the house were then prepared and laid.
