The form contractor came this morning and stripped the footing and formed the walls. The survey guys came and shot the corners of the forms to be sure they were accordance with the variance. I'm so shell shocked from going for the variance I kept telling them not to square it towards the property line. I hope they listened. lol They were very good workers I got lucky with them.
Here are some pictures of what they did.





They had a nice rig for the forms. They used a dumpster hauler with a dumpster with the sides cut down . They drop it and unload it close to the ground. It felt weird, I was outside while they were placing the concrete. It started to rain a little so I went back in the house and just watched out the bay window nice and dry. It felt like I was doing something wrong because I used to do concrete work for a living.

Not too much today they came back and stripped the walls. I also caulked a crack in the house foundation while it was accessable.
Here are a few pictures.




Here's a picture of the crack I filled.

Tomorrow the inspector come to look at the fooundation. If it passes we backfill and I install the conduit for the feed from the 200 amp garage panel to the 100 amp house panel. Because of the weather were going to get Friday, we'll have to wait until next week to pour the floor. Still not too bad for three days

Looks great, Wayne. I had to post on your thread at GJ, too.

It's awesome that you have a contractor that's so great to work with.

That's awesome Wayne. Good to hear. You deserve it brother, especially after hearing about the defective hip replacement stuff. Keep us posted.
By the way, has Mike made any progress on your car at the shop?

Thanks guys There back filling it now. We had a little excitement earlier. The bobcat was brining gravel to the inside of the garage. He went to dump a load over the wall for the outside and flipped the Bob Cat over. He was ok but it took a chunk out of the top of the wall and one of the anchor bolts got ripped out. Nothing that can't be fixed. The siding runs down past that area anyway. I'll post some pictures later.
Tony I sent him a couple of e mails nothing back from him yet.

Here are some pictures of todays work.



Here's a few of the back filling.
