The power of the reverse ledge
Last week we saw that the wood was delivered. This week, our first floor deck gets installed. In the pic above, you can see a 2x4 stud wall inside the foundation wall, and the open web trusses sitting on top of them. This detail is called a reverse ledge (more on that later).
The forms for the second pour on the foundation walls went up, and that concrete went in. Then the basement slab got poured, so we can officially walk on something other than dirt!!! Huge milestone.
Forms before function
It's pretty cool to see the house starting to come out of the ground. The footers are now dry enough, so the foundation wall forms were set in place and the concrete was poured.
