March 15th and 16th were spent preparing the garage and basement for the pouring of their concrete floors. For the garage, a large part of this was dumping fill to bring the floor to ground level. For the basement, this included the plumbing for the water supply, the sewer drains and the sump pump.
The following pictures were taken after the end of the work day on March 17th. They show the finished basement and garage floors. The roughed in plumbing for the sewer drain, sump pump and water supply are also visible.
Note that all the roughed in plumbing is PVC rather than copper or cast iron.
This is the sewer drain ready to be hooked up to the town’s sewer system. Look closely and you can see a wire running along the drain pipe. Since the pipe is PVC rather than cast iron, the wire provides a magnetic source to locate the drain pipe once the trench is filled in.
That’s all for now…stay tuned for more…
