For a chronological listing of our building projects with ICF (or insulated concrete forms), be sure to look through the ICF Building Index tab in the menu bar.
With the footers and supporting walls completed, we are ready for the front porch concrete!
The weather after the blizzard has been a milder and John and the boys have been able to get the prep work done to have the concrete delivered. In the photo above, you can see the front porch pad with the wire mesh and rebar just waiting for the cement truck. Since the front porch is so large, we are pouring it in two different pours. Hence, the wood you see in the photo above is used to divide the porch into sections.
As the concrete dries a float is used to finish the concrete and give a smoother finish. The cement truck came about 1:00 pm and John and the boys were finished about 10:30 pm – it was a long day but very productive!
