The new front entrance to the Delaney House with the porch post supports in place
In addition to pouring the slab inside the house, we also poured the front porch slab. This will eventually be at grade, so the house will be wheelchair accessible. There will be a concrete walkway from the street to the front door of the Delaney House.
Now that the slab is done, we can work on installing the windows and doors, framing the rest of the bay window and getting the house closed up. Then, we'll put down the piping for the radiant heating system that will heat the first floor. After the system is installed, a second slab will be poured - this one only 2 inches thick of gypcrete.
Once the heating slab is in, we'll put down two layers of plywood, and then we can put down the finished floor.
Looking down what will be the hallway toward the front door
After that, all the finish work starts: wiring, plumbing, insulation, and then the walls go in. Still a lot to do, but definitely progress is being made! We hope that both houses will be occupied in 2012 - keep your fingers crossed.
