I hope that's perforated pipe, or it seems like it wouldn't do much good. I've heard of putting fine mesh fabric (probably something like a weed control barrier cloth) around perforated drain line to keep the line from silting up.

Very jealous and happy for you. SOunds like you have it all dialed in. My biggest concern as mentioned before is building across what appears to be a drainage swale. That seems to be covered with the perimeter drain system. I did not see any waterproofing against the block yet to prevent weepage through it to the inside. I am sure you have all of that figured out.

I love the radiant floor heating except for the fact of how are you going to mount stuff to the slab? If you get a lift, large compressor, heavy tools, etc. you will have to be real careful setting anchors in the floor. Looks like it will give you many years of great use. You will suddenly become everyone's friend with a space like that to work in.

Yeah,

The pex in the slab becomes a problem setting future anchors...

Some say map the pex system and it isn't a problem, but It would kill me to ruin a zone.

For the Items I have to anchor to the floor now.. Tire machine, compressor and a future jib lift I will set pillars and route pex around.


Gravel and Trusses arrived yesterday, project is about to go high gear


Anyone have experience with concrete densifiers??

Concrete hardner

At 2 plants I worked at had them put on the concrete one for wear the other for conductivity.
At the fire house I ran with we put it on to look colored as oppose to grey concrete.
They were the powder type sprinkled on to the surface and troweled in to the top cream.
It was iron filings like powder trowled in that turned black (looked good to)


They were a bear to drill into the surface was very hard for about ž to ― inch after that regular 2500 psi concrete no other problems with it.
It might be nice for garage for hard wheeled floor type jacks I know my concrete has some scratches on mine from the wheels .
In hind sight I would have considered springing for it.

Seems like lots has happened, But 12 hour days at work have kept me occupied.

Wednesday, framing started.















Small battle with local Sanitary Authority, Sched 40 can not be buried with 2b, so come Saturday it needs re-dug and 1b that has been compacted 6" below and above needs to go in before they will bless the sewer tie in.

I should have read the regs

Looking good, buddy.

We had some schedule 80 ABS break here where I work because some small piece of crushed rock got next to it instead of the clean sand it was supposed to have; it seems plastic pipe is quite sensitive to that. Ours was a pressurized water line though, not a sewer drain, so it might be a different situation...

Better safe than sorry.

Ahhhh!

I was only mad at myself for not reading the regulations on it.

All squared away just like the book wants. Got the okay to close it up.

Roof trusses went up today no photo's yet, still at work. I will grab a night time photo later.



Silke, Details on location...otherwise it is Northern Yankee land.
