We had the walls up by the end of July and then I went on holidays for just over a week. Since getting back I have installed the perimeter drains and rain drains. Yesterday I had a slinger truck come in and place the 3/4 rock over the perimeter drains as well as it took 72 yds of sand to fill in the basement cavity. There were places that were 2 feet thick. It all had to compacted and levelled so I was on the business end of the compactor from 10 am till 7 pm trying to get it reasonably level and well compacted. The slinger truck arrived at 8:15 am with the load of rock and brought another 6 loads of sand. It was all placed and he was heading to another job by 1:30. This is so much easier than hauling with wheel barrow. It would have taken me days. Now the plumber will rough in the basement and I likely need one more load of sand. Once I get the water line and the power line in I can backfill later this week. The inspector from the municipality was here yesterday and gave us the go ahead. We are going to pour the floor once the plumber is done and before the framer starts. Still have to decide whether we are putting in infloor heat before we pour. I have committed to putting 1.5 inch styrofoam under the floor and I will likely rough in the infloor heat. Nothing seems to go as quickly as i think but we are making progress.
