We are nearly done with the digging phase of Operation: Finish Basement! There are just 2 footings left to be dug. And the old floor is completely gone (and the 2 feet of clay under the old floor).
Here you can see the dark grey line where the old floor used to be. The area under the grey line is the new footing and wall that we made.
To get a little perspective here is the area on October 7th...
And here it is on November 7th!
So what comes next?
First we need to put down a layer of stone as the base of the new concrete slab.
Then a layer of
vapor barrier (a big sheet of black plastic)
wire mesh with radiant pex pipe attached to it so we can have heat!
and finally the layer of concrete.
Our goal is to pour the concrete floor sometime next week!
