We installed the floor joists and plywood just before Christmas which allowed the basement to retain heat to enable the concrete slab to be both poured and cured. We poured the basement slab in some brutal sub zero temperatures.
Last Friday we had the walls delivered pre-assembled to enable us to erect them with a brief exposure to the winter's elements.
We set individual wall sections in place with the crane and held them up with metal wall braces.
By noon we had all of the exterior walls standing in place - a task that would have taken us two weeks framing them on site. We could focus on other clients and interior projects that needed to be tended to. Amazing.
