The plywood sheets were delivered this morning and the crew from Jim Giancola Concrete hand-carried them down into the basement.

The first step was to drill holes every 18" in the stacks of plywood. These holes will be used for the Snap Ties to hold the plywood forms 10" apart and keep them from buldging out when the concrete is poured.

The next step was to spray a product called Release Number 1 VOC (made by Edoco) on the inside face on the plywood to keep it from sticking to the concrete. That way they can reuse the plywood on their next job.

They started in the back left corner, and by the afternoon, they were almost completely done with the outside of the form.
