The Week in Review … Lots of Progress

It has been a very busy week on the building site.  The forms for the footings were finished on Monday and the footings poured on Tuesday.  The photos here show the footings with bits and pieces of the straw that was placed on top after the pour to retain heat. The rest of these photos show the ICF blocks (insulated concrete forms) being put in place.  These blocks use less concrete than  a traditional pour and provide R-10 insulaton on either side of the concrete.  And they go up really fast.
