Over the past 3 weeks since the last update, things have really moved along at the Casa Alexandria Semi Detached Home Construction
On the floor, we first roughed in all the plumbing pipes and electrical conduits, then we back-filled and compacted. After compaction we laid out and tied our 10mm reinforcing steel matting. Once that was complete, we poured our floor slab on grade.
We tied all our 16mm rebar for the columns and made sure that any plumbing or electrical that need to be in them was finished. We then formed and poured all our columns.
While doing the columns our masons got to work on the walls, and over the course of the past few weeks have set most of the ground floor walls in place.
Currently we are working on tying all re-bar for the first floor suspended beams and floor slab, the preparing all the forms. Once complete we start roughing in all plumbing and electrical that will be buried in the floor slab.
This Casa Alexandria Semi Detached Duplex is shaping up very nicely.
