Default 3G_'s Build

The base is nearly excavated. Its 1900mm wide 2100 deep with 350mm deep and 300 wide footings. Ill pour the slab about 150mm thick with 12mm rebar in it and SL62 mesh.
No frost line here in Adelaide to worry about, but the clay soil is fairly reactive.

Wow! That is a footing.

I had a close encounter with a pickaxe this weekend, too. Glad it's over.

You're in good company over there in Adelaide. I've met some good people on this list over there and I'm proud to call them friends.

Welcome and keep the pics coming.

Christo

Have put some steel in, need to get some proper stands for the reo. Not the tidiest but should be strong enough, ended up being 500 deep footing with 150mm thick slab. Next job is to wheelbarrow 2 cubic metres of concrete in.

Im getting the blocks in today and have to make the decision on the bricks. The cheapest i can get fire bricks is $3.30 each, red clay bricks are $0.70 each. I was about to go the clay bricks then pulled out at the last moment, still unsure!!

They are solid, 230x110x76mm.
Bit more progress today. Instead of a lintel i notched out the blocks and put two 1/2"rods inthe bottom and 1 1/2"rod along the top.
