Footings In Place

The basic gist:
After the footings are excavated, the rebar is tied and placed, and the the formwork is set...

1. Concret trucks arrive carrying 10 yards of concrete each. Each home's footings get about 2 trucks.

2. The trucks pour into the concrete pump...


3. The pump forces the concrete into a 4" hose that is managable to move around and reach to the far corners of the project.
