That is awesome progress.... you've got enough depth there where you could almost do a safe room or something under the finished floor after the inspectors are long gone....

No, no, no, that's no good at all. That stuff looks all straight, level, and plumb. Not at all like what we are used to seeing back there.

Looking at your fence line and proximity of your neighbors, how do you get to that garage?

Regards,

First, looks like real quality work.
Second, Iím jealous. Here in Chesapeake Bay country we'd never get to build that garage on your size lot as it creates too much impervious area. Run-off is the number one problem for the water shed.

It looks closer than it is. The fence corner is just under 14 feet from the back corner of the house. It is a little tight. This is also why I am going with one large door. So you can more easily get around the corner and into the left side of the garage.
As soon as I can. I will be putting in a 4 post lift on the right side of the garage. The 66 Ranchero will be stored above my Mustang creating even more room for activities.

Thanks for all the positive support everyone. It means a lot.
I get stress from everywhere, and everyone, about this garage build. It will be great to get this in the rear view mirror.

It is supposed to rain the next few days again.
So I will probably end up with a really big swimming pool. It won't hurt anything.
Maybe I should advertise for a mud spa. I could charge $50.00 ahead for old women to swim in Pure Michigan clay and mud. LOL.
Today 2 masons showed up. They got everything ready for grouting the block, tar, and back fill. Another inspection has to happen. Then after the plumbers do their work the pad can be poured. Then part of the driveway.
Here are pic's of what it looks like now. More progress is a good thing.
I forgot to mention. One of the masons that worked yesterday is also building a new, multi million dollar, Ford Museum some where local. I thought that was ironic.

You have to be talented to ring a hole with rebar 6 block down...

Even more interested now in this process...

Also are they going to lay a top row of "L" block to tie the slab into the block? Just curious...

They already did the rebar see the prior pic's. The blocks with an X marked on them are to indicate where the rebar is for the inspector.
It is code that every 3rd block, or 4 feet, get rebar. Up to 3 course high, or more. Then inspected. Then it gets grouted in, and more rebar installed where needed for more courses.
Then. Back fill and more inspection.
After that Plumbing for the sewer, water, and gas. Then Plumbing inspection. Then the pad will be poured 6 inches with steel mesh reinforcement. Like the picture above.
I do not know about the L block.
He wanted to start 6 inch block for the next 3 course of block to get a lip around the perimeter of the slab.
Because this block is currently above the finish floor height, by a few inches. I do not exactly know how he intends to do the slab.
This is a conversation I will have with him the moment I see him.
Technically speaking. He can go 2 feet above the lot's front curb to meet city code. This is the code for the grade of the yard.
BUT.
I was given special instruction for this to be less. To be at 1.5 feet grade. Because I have house basement window sills to contend with. If the garage finished floor height is too high, the future new drive way grade would be too high, and end up being over the house's basement window sills.
This is a concern for me.
It is no big deal if the slab floor is floating.

@1969sag, ok, I went back and saw the rebar. Again, I was just curious. It will be interesting to see how they tie the slab in but with the work performed, I'm sure they have a plan...
