On Friday we finished the foundations by pouring the slabs! Another milestone.
When I say we, I mean the two guys who I hired: Rob and Barnaby. They did a great job and were a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately, the concrete trucks were late, and since the pour was already scheduled for the afternoon, Rob and Barnaby had to work into the dark. On Saturday Barnaby came back and we made two saw cuts into the house slab, dividing the house into quadrants. The cuts are called control joints, and they tell the concrete where to crack (the assumption is concrete always cracks).
