Another small step forward...

Aug. 20, 2010
Another step forward with the completing the installation of formwork for the basement walls.

Now, does the keyway have to by dry in order to install the water stop?  Probably... Grrrr....


  1. two questions for now:
    1. are there construction drawings for us to look through?
    2. who are you using for a general contractor?

  2. Yes, there are construction drawings! But they are in constant in flux. Why don't you come visit and have a look? Or would you rather I send you PDFs?

    and I am contracting this work with a friend/colleague of mine who had built a couple houses. His name is Matt McCombe, and he actually has a company called McHomes Building Ltd. No joke. He's also an electrical engineer at Manasc Isaac.

  3. It would be great to see the pdfs, and then come over to visit so I can ask more questions and we can mill over a few ideas.

    Sounds like Matt is someone I need to ask questions of, also... (we're having some trouble finding a contractor willing to do 'odd' jobs)
