CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS ‘ backfill grading profile’ 3

these are archived files for reference and general interest
and the pictures are for concept.
One could take note of all the retaining that has been performed on this lot build out.
It has been efficient and managed very well with all sub trades, materials handling, equipment visits, manpower organization while working with all  weather conditions.
Time is money to build projects.
The synergism, enthusiasm and team efforts that I see here create envy.

…see the light well framing. It does not require framing from the base of the footing.
…the garage foundation  is backfilled to give support to EACH side of the foundation walls and it usually a place to rid your boulders and miscellaneous excavation materials
…the water hook up at the sidewalk street front is exposed waiting for the inspection approval.
..the size of the water line correlates with the building permit and number of bathrooms in the house as well as all other plumbing systems.

…there are 12 boxes as they call them or dump truck loads placed in this approx.1800 square footprint of crushed rock….placed on the inside of the foundation walls for a base to work the plumbing and prep for an eventual floor pour. The operator will attempt to throw the bucket loads to distance by using his boom for reach and a strategy of opening the bucket. Talent it is.
..a bigger machine would take the bucket lifts along the side of the foundation THAT HAD ALREADY BEEN BACKFILLED with the existing excavation fill. The operator would take the lifts of gravel from the dump truck box in sequence with the truck operator elevating his angle of the box. Talent. the operator walks the machine along the parallel of this foundation he must be careful not to create too much compaction against the new foundation walls due to the weight of the machine. Multi tasking.
…apparently the wet material due to recent snow and rain, climatic conditions does not encumber the backfilling compaction. The fill can be wet but the ground and fill cannot be frozen.
….personally I would think dry and more lumos would be better..
Over the period of the next six months to finish the house there will be much rain and other weather types to allow the natural settlement.
 The wood framed out window light wells were also  synchronizing with the foundation walls……and back filled.
…the bottom of these light wells will be filled with gravel.

Newsletter February 2019——-IS EVERYTH ING IN BALANCE?




Hello Clients and Friends;

Please see the attached February newsletter.

Opportunity usually sits in the face of circumstance.
At any given time there are factors that cause movements within the real estate market.

Today we have supply and choices and locations.
Today we have circumstances of motivation.
Today we still have reasonable interest rates.

In the last decade of real estate sales activity the lion share of transactions were with consumers trading equities. They gave focus to the difference of what they had in relation to the new consideration of what to acquire.

It all works out in the long run…the long term.
The best circumstance today is that there is supply.

It is a good time to stay with principle residence considerations and make a move if the circumstances suggest to do so.

Thank you always for the referrals.
