I KNOW, I KNOW… I’m slow at updating this blog, but Its only been about 3 weeks since this progress occurred:
There was more concrete poured at the Bright container house building site, this time on top, and across our first containers. This new slab will become our deck, and will be the foundation for our next three containers to sit and be bolted onto. In order for the beams and the first two containers to hold the weight of the wet concrete, shores were put in place, lots of them. These shores will stay in place for a total of 28 days while the concrete cures. Here are some pictures of the process:
They first had to lay wire mesh and form up for the stairs and the edge of the deck.
Then they put the shores in place:
The concrete pump truck, and the concrete truck arrived and started working..
And after all that work..
During all this work Fox23 stopped by to interview Tyler and film some progress of our house. They said the story should air sometime in July, Ill be sure and post it when it airs.
One thought on “More Concrete.. and a Surprise Visitor”
Why did you guys choose this instead of framing with wood and attaching the 2nd level containers to the 1st?
I love the idea of concrete. Would there still be a way to get the same look without the concrete?
I’m still wowed by everything you’ve accomplished 🙂
