Remember the game as kids where two kids would crouch down in a line and then take turns jumping over each other? This project reminds me of that game. The electrician and the plumber takes turns jumping over the ICF guy. Nobody can do their whole job all at once. Each element seems to depend on each other element. Frog.
The BIG blocks of foam are not for insulation, but instead go against the concrete walls to relieve lateral pressure from compacted fill. These will be installed in an upside down pyramid to essentially mold the fill into a 1:1 slope away from the foundation.
The blue tubes is called smurf. It is flexible conduit for the electrician.
The cantilevered deck form is nearing completion.
Next week we should pour the floor beams and maybe even the new perimeter foundation.
