Everything has gone so fast while seeming slow at the same time. To skip ahead to the fun stuff, I want to give you a quick flip-book of the progress from breaking ground on the footers, to the day we poured the concrete foundation.
We decided to pour a concrete pad foundation with radiant floor heat throughout. We will have three separate sections and thermostats. The garage will be one, the master bedroom/bath and walk in closet and then the great room and spare bedroom/bath and laundry. The floor heat system will work off of natural gas an a boiler that hangs on the wall in our garage. We were lucky enough to have the radiant floor heat in the basement of our previous home and we LOVED it!
This is really happening, starting to dig the footers for the foundation!
Here we go!
Can you spot Charlie?? He LOVES to ride in the backhoe.
Pouring the footers.
Charlie wanted to be sure they were dry. He walked the whole loop.
Time for block!
So excited to see this progress.
Rainy days don’t help with construction time lines.
Charlie obviously loves the dust.
Laying out ALL the plumbing ahead since we are pouring a pad with no crawl space.
Our nephew helping Uncle Ryan.
All ready for the heated floor tubing and insulation.
Is this really happening??
Laying out the insulation and vapor barrier.
Ready for the tubing.
Again with the dust.
Charlie says we are ready!
Wire mesh and tubing in place!
We are ready to pour the concrete.
Just had to share this gorgeous bloom!
