    Hope you get your redemption on this project. All the best!

    BTW – Does look like a lot of work for a little guy like that

    The footprint for the addition is 16′-6″x 18′-6″.
    It took that machine close to 13 hours to dig it all out and move the spoils around.

    Much better than if they passed out shovels 😉

    Frost is a PITA….just adds time to the set up and clean up every day with the hoarding.
    When we do additions here that don’t include a full basement we have to excavate down to, and tie in to, the existing footing; and then step it up from there. Everything surrounding the home is fill from the original build, and placing footings on that non-bearing fill is a big no-no.
    So the bottom of the footing runs out 4 feet and then steps up a maximum of two feet, and from there it’s a matter of matching your step up heights to where your final elevation is.
    I screwed up my first step away from the house though…it’s best if they are 4′ out to accommodate form panels, but I messed up and ended up being 53″. Now I have to cut an odd filler to throw in there.

    Oh yeah! That would’ve been at least a week of digging and moving spoils around.
    Feel bad for the guys placing the concrete though….it’s all gotta be by wheelbarrow and shovel.
    We have ZERO access for a pump truck and concrete truck without getting a permit to shut down two lanes of traffic.
    The road out in the front of the house is just too busy to even chance it.
    The footings went fine, because the guys were able to just dump over the edge into the forms…but later this week when the walls are done and ready to poor they are going to have to scoop it all in I think.

    Just do smaller loads for the weakest guys lol. Better than cleaning up spilled concrete on the path.

    I’m going to tell them that a spilled wheel barrow is a six pack or a case of beer for the crew.
    That’s the way it’s been on every job I’ve been on…gotta keep the tradition alive 😀

    Yep…guess I never clarified that.
    We’ve had laborers on site to do the moving and placing….and I was scooping and finishing on the footings. But I think the walls are going to take all of us.

    No pump truck ???

    My back is hurting already for you guys.

    Glad to hear you had to step away from the corner cutters. I bet you sleep better at night.

    Not a lot of time on site today…had to go finish some flooring and trim from a job earlier last week.
    My helper was only available until 2PM today, so I had him get the footings cleaned up while I shot a few elevations to transfer to the form ply later.
    Then we got to placing the sheets.
    He placed them where they needed to be and then I tacked ’em up.
    When he left I got the plate along the backside just to string ’em together and placed some temporary bracing for the night.
    Re-hoarded the thing and got out of there for today.
    Been dropping below -10°C at night lately, but is supposed to warm up next week…I hope it warms up enough to eliminate the hoarding because it wastes a lot of time at the end of the day.

    @asevereid Thank you for the update. Looks like the project is moving along. Too bad the weather causes extra work.

    Sounds like the new job is much better than the last. Keep up the good work and decisions.



    @DirtyWhiteBoy
    up here even further we have to go 48″ down to get below the frost line.

    Always learning, and some teaching along the way.

    @dirty
    When we dug our foundation we found lots of buffalo bones. Kids had fun digging around.



    @asevereid

    Why don’t you use ICF. Less hoarding issues and no stripping forms.

    And it is warm inside when you are done.

    Not my show, I’m just the guy putting it together. By time the rental costs on the hoarding are covered it would probably work out to the same value as ICF.
    Would be nice though…never worked with ICF.



    @DirtyWhiteBoy
    no bones down there:D
    But there’s a highway project about 10 minutes out of down that has had a full time archeological squad there because they found native bones when they were breaking ground.
