I haven’t had the chance to do any wood working for a while nor even had time to post or check online for a bit. However I have a good reason, I am finally going to get part of the basement with a level concrete floor. I have dug and leveled, with some brick back fill. Have the polythine down and actually ready to pour this coming Saturday. My partners father who so happens to do this kind of stuff for a living is also helping, well is doing most of of it to tell the honest truth. I said it will be an easy pour but just timely due to its location from the truck… we can even get a pup to it…
The section we are doing first is the main part, and it is pretty hard to explain unless you know the layout of the land, but the the other end will be a lot harder as the last ower’s of the house must have just poured concrete in spits and spats when the had a spare dollar or two, so a lot of it needs to be dug out and reworked.
I will still have to work around the house piles but having a level floor here is going to be like bliss compared to what I am use to. To the left is the next section I will work on once the part is done, but that will be a step so I don’t need to put in a retaining wall further back as it slopes up the hill under the house, and t is working with the lay out of the land instead of trying to fight it… this is als the part that we have to pecarefule of as because when it rains the water drains down through this.
Once I get even this section of the floor done I can clad part of the walls and start to get the place sorted… I want it done like yesterday but considering what wlse we have done about the place and we have only owned the place for 18months now we aren’t doing to bad. Not only that we have no budget and have been broke since the day we bought the place… lol
