Barn: pier footing forms... Our builder finished these yesterday afternoon, but the field was too wet and mucky for a concrete truck to get in. We're hoping they can pour today.
The first photo just shows a rough form, sitting in its hole in the backfill. The second shows the two rows of four piers. The last shows the forms finished and ready to pour. These are held up by stakes and are only roughly in the design position. The top of them is several inches below the needed top of the pier foundation. Once the footings have cured a day or two, a round form will be placed on top, and the top of this will be carefully positioned and set to the right height. These will be poured next, after which the pier/footing “assemblies” will be backfilled around and compacted. At that point (hopefully still this week), it will be time to put a layer of fine gravel over all the backfill, and carefully level it...
