It looks great but why so deep? Is your frost line really that far down?

I am so thankful that I do not have to worry about a frost line, That is a LOT of extra work. I was born and raised in Omaha/C.B. and all of the family is still there, mostly Bellevue, Papillion and Millard. I sure hope that the weather holds for you during construction. Have a great build.

Looks good so far. After much back and forth about the frost line and al we went with a floating slab. Basicall dug about a foot down and laid out pink insulation board then poured the concrete with rebar.
First year hte slab sat through winter with no problems. Now that we have the oven built and winter setting upon us we will see what happens. I don't think we wil have much of an issue.

I hope you can get your build tot h pount that onteh nicer days around Omaha you put in a few hours and work it through the winter. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

Mine is built on DG. I only went down 10 to 12 inches and my back thanks me for it.

Wikipedia disambiguation page to the rescue

DG = Decomposed granite in this context

Thanks David. It's pretty much like building on sand - extremely little (or none) frost heave.

Great looking foundation. I am from the Millard area and still have relatives living in Bellevue. I have just started my 40" WOF here this fall. I have the foundation and walls complete. Thinking I will have to wait till spring thaw before I can frame and pour the Hearth. I will hopefully post some Pics of my progress. Happy Building, Tom from DSM.
