more floor prep

Filed under: floor — aroundthebend @ 9:15 pm


Well, we’re getting closer to being ready to pour the floor.  Lots of little steps to take.   Dennis and Harry think about how to build the form for the concrete for the entryway, which is taken from the garage area.  The garage floor is required to be six inches lower than the house floor so that fumes do not enter the house.  They use leftover pieces of Nudura, stabilized with leftover pieces of rebar, and lots of wire.

The radiant tubes from all the house zones go through the same doorway to the manifold. Ben the plumber suggested we insulate those tubes to prevent the floor above them from becoming uncomfortably hot.

Harry pressurizes the tubes to test for possible leaks and checks all the connections with soapy water. 

And now some more foam to fill the cracks between the insulation.
