Pad for Front Step

Finished the rebar for the garage pad, had to do a couple of changes that were recommended by my structural engineer neighbor. (Sylwester)
Then covered in the front of the front deck and dug out and prepared the area for the concrete pad which will go under the front steps.

Garage Floor

Deck hole still has water so we are working on the garage floor, so far we have installed the styrofoam, the heating pipes and most of the rebar. I need to purchase more tie wire to complete the rebar.

Drinking water

Due to the on going rainy season, we had one of two things to do, build an ARC or install the Reverse Osmosis unit. I opted for the drinking water.

We now have a swimming pool!

Almost had it ready for back filling, before we went to Cold Lake for a few days.(work) We now have a swimming pool with a very iffy diving board.

When it dries up we will continue.

Busy Busy -June

Sorry about no up dates. Have started working for others and have not had time to do a lot on the house.
The floor in the garage has been prepared for styrofoam, rebar, hot water piping and cement. Waiting for the water piping to arrive.

We arranged for a contractor working in the area to dig a trench to put in the footing for the deck piles. He did that work two weeks ago, when we were away, however he was two feet short in length. So we had to wait until today when the machine was back in the area to get it done right.

The weather has not helped, as we just received another rain and the hole is now full of water.

Plan is to have the footings done and back filled ready to started the deck next week, weather depending.
