Footings for both builds ~ the master bedroom suite in the foreground and also the double detached garage far left corner.
Blockwork being built onto the concrete poured foogings ready for oversight etc.
Here's the footings taking shape for the new double detached garage.
These pipes bring air into the old build so these need to be built into the foundations of the new master bedroom.
Damp Proofing and Insulation
Damp proofing and insulation in the foundations and footings of both the master bedroom suite, as you can see here in this picture, and also the garage.
Mark putting mesh steelwork into the foundations to make it strong and supportive. Concrete will be poured on top.
Finally the concrete is laid
After a lot of work, the concrete footings and foundations are finally laid, but before nightfall..!! Such a lot of work goes into the ground then gets covered up! So it's good to take photographs all the way through just to see how much work is in the preparation of the build.
