« Part 16: Added to my shop area before moving on Part 17 of First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw series Part 18: Slab Grading: Second rough-in and forms »

I started grading about 5 months ago, maybe late August.

Pictures of the first rough grading.

I have stockpiled fill on the bank above the slab-area. Note that the area was already at driveway level. I did not excavate all that much. I took back the slope from the driveway to the native grade; a total of 8 feet or so. The fill you see came from this original making of the slope vertical and the actual rough grading for the slab area. Around the slab will be a french drain and I’ll use some of this material to back-fill the drain trench.

No forms in this series. The line is to give me some idea of slab-grade while I work.
