I was looking at those foundations being prepared and it looks like they have some sort of a grid of boxes that the concrete is going to flow around. Could you elaborate on what those are and what the purpose is for them?

Shower in progress. 2nd time for me to do 1/16" joints. I couldn't have pulled this off 5 years ago..hell maybe even 3 years ago. Adds an element of difficulty that I enjoy...

Here's the largest walnut job that I've been part of. 50 sheets of plywood and somewhere around 1000 bd ft of solid wood. Not 100% done yet but real close.

JC, what do you have down for floor protection there? Is it held down by duct tape? No damage issues with the tape?

No, no grain filling on this one. However, there is a couple extra coats of finish to partially fill the grain.

The GC put down the floor protection. The name of the stuff escapes me right now but it's around 1/8" thick and is foil faced on the one side. It's not sold as floor protection but works pretty good for that. They put down red rosin paper first and then lay that on top and tape it. Nothing gets taped to the finished floor.
