It took 3 weekends and several weeknights to perform the layout, forming, fastfoot installation, and rebar placement. I am so proud of my husband for doing it all himself.
The footings for the basement are a level 5″ below the finished floor elevation. The footings for the 1st level are purposely not level, instead they are simply 16″-24″ tall. Stem walls will be installed next to bring the foundation to a level finished floor elevation, then the non-structural slab can be poured.
