They're putting the final touches on the wall forms today. The inspector is coming out this afternoon and if all goes well, we should be pouring the walls first thing tomorrow morning.

They will be using 3000 lb concrete tomorrow -- between 55 and 70 yards of it. An inspector will be on-hand tomorrow, casting cylinders to make sure the concrete meets that specification.

The last two pictures are some closeups of the hold downs and the Strong-Wall hold downs. Notice how the Strong-Wall hold down bolts are set in a template so that they will be located accurately in the foundation.
