Prepping the main floor for concrete!

October 8, 2010

wire mesh over plywood.

Tony using his nifty drill for screws.
I helped Matt put down the wire mesh on top of the plywood of the main floor. We are hoping to pour concrete.  The mesh was actually left over from an exhibition in which we used it to hang printed art for a M.A.D.E. in Edmonton show. I'm glad we are re-using it for a new purpose. It was all in small pieces- my job was to tie the pieces together with wire.  Matt nailed the pieces down.  And we ran out, so Matt finished up after running out to get some more mesh.

We also called in our framer Tony from Calibrated Homes to put down the bottom plates for the interior closet walls [which were left out until I could make up my mind on their sizes], as well as for the bathroom, again, an 11th hour change. He also screwed down the top layer of plywood, that lifted in some spots. Our plumber, Jordan, also came in to put in the floor drain for the laundry room and to install a temporary water hose access.
