Our original plans were drawn up to use ICFs for our basement. ICFs are forms for concrete that stack like legos, then you leave the entire form in place and it creates it's own interior and exterior insulation that way. Well, great idea, but it just didn't work out for us.
So we are going the traditional concrete form way of building basement walls. After Wednesday's pour of the footings, Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday were spent setting up the forms.
This is the porch.
This is the garage.
