Yes,

Foundation steps 5 total. Not as level a spot as it appears.

Right, I went back and had another look at the pics, should have done that first!
I have a couple of questions, mainly because I design houses for a living but remember I've never been to Appalachia and don't even live in the same hemisphere....

The ground looks like a natural gully to me, a dip between two higher points, do you have to be concerned with water running through there? Here that would be treated with a sub soil drain around the perimeter to ensure any water was drained away from the foundation, do you have similar concerns there?
What's the climate like, hot , snow, wet? and what do you have to do to the garage (insulation) to make it comfortable enough to work in rather than just for storage?
Why do you have to post the permit signage?

Natural drainage path...

Will handle surface runoff with one collector which is located at upper edge of property. In the before picture you may note the slightly exposed 8" terra cotta pipe which handled the runoff before. I will tie into it with 8" flex and run around front side of foundation. In addition I will run a French (perimeter drain with 4" PVC around the entire foundation.

Pennsylvania is the location... see climate link http://www.bestplaces.net/climate/ci...nia/pittsburgh

snowy 7 months out of the year.



Walls will be R19 batts, ceiling will be about R45 batting Dry wall layer over.

Heat source will be hydronic in floor system electric boiler...Holding 60-65 degrees F.


Permit is township requirement revenue/zoning/code compliance...Yes must be posted http://www.peterstownship.com/index....3223C43BF5E%7D

It's a far cry from a May start Rick but it sure is drier now, you kids stay out of trouble this weekend, I Really really wanted to make Hot Springs.

Last night had to buy a s40 6" PVC pipe. Needed 12" section for sewer cut out. Damn things are almost 70 bucks for 10' hunk

So I laid out cut outs for city water Natural Gas, cistern water line and sewer.

Also had to run a 10' 3/4" copper, city water line out to a new hose bib for the block layer. another 8 leak free joints


Thought block was arriving today....guess not.

Well, it's just me, but I think getting the garage dried-in before the snow flies probably takes precedence over hanging out with a buncha Morans. Though not by much...

I had no idea plastic was so expensive.

Sounds like you're having heat and a bathroom?

What are you using to insulate under and around the edges of the slab? Our local dumb fucks at our highway garage did it themselves without any insulation. My tax dollars now pay to heat the parking area around the garage with all the escaped heat, not to mention they installed overhead FA heaters later.

Closed cell spray foam might work great, insulation and vapor barrier all in one.

I used closed cell spray foam on the inside of the stone walls of our lodge. More to the the topic though, under the basement floor I used a version of this:

The below grade version has the aluminum sandwiched between the two layers of plastic. The basement area of the lodge is now the most comfortable below grade space I've ever been in. No heat loss or moisture issues which were a huge problem prior to this.

What is the theory behind the aluminum in the under-slab installation?
