That should provide a nice fix for your forming fetish.

Hey, those are copyright pictures!!!

What you see is what you get for ICF on this project, tight city lots so the builder is framing the balance of the house...uggh

If you want Nick, those upper retaining walls need the bar tied, 12" o.c. both ways...good Saturday job for you!!!

Look at your pictures, see all that SM at the top? That's about 200' of wall anywhere from 4' to 8' tall, I'll set you up

is it a one sided wall, like put forms 12" away from that foam and retaining beams and then pour it?

Re: My Increasing Interest In Forming.


So today i had no school so... i went back to work with(for) Chris
When i got there i had to dig out some of the point load footings. to a depth of 18"

We had to unload the form truck... I thought ICF would be lighter because its foam. Lets just say they are heavier then they look

Then i set them up, level blah blah.

Did some rebar work. tying bar and what not. I will make a pair of linemans pliers with a handle like those of scissors so that when you go to cut and spin you don't lose grip. Patent pending

Pump showed up and then we had to wait. What 1 hour for the first truck and then trucks were all over the place 45min 1hour out each time. Except the last 2. We had some interesting slumps that we poured. Some agilia sorta stuff and some like peanut butter

Poured them. no blow outs. screeeded and embed dowels. The steps in these footings made from some interesting pouring. We had to pour part of the step to close it up and let it set then go back and finish the steps up.

Oh ya. Chris builds some serious footings. Serious. 2 rows of 15m rebar. And the boards 2x8s. These aren't your average throw down some 1x6 and hope it holds footings, these are real. 2'-6" 6" bend dowels every 16"..

And the steps perfect 18" to accommodate the 18" block he uses.

Was a nice day. Framers were going good. I had to resist temptation though to hop up and help them

Weird design.. Maybe chris can post the footing plan. On 1 side there is footings on the inside of the house...
Im not sure why..

Anyways heres some pics.

Re: My Increasing Interest In Forming.


went again.
Not much interesting. His guys got lots of walls built. i did labor tasks. The first time i felt like a laborer on that site. but i don't mind everyone contributes.
i laid 1 block today

Few more weeks on that site.
I learned some stuff about benchmarks and setting grades and stuff. and brick ledge. Pretty cool
Set up scafollding and what not.
The framer next door is doing pretty good. he said that once chris leaves i could go help him frame the other 3. Not to abandon chris of course. No way i would do that. Its just chris's next project is 1.5-2 hours away and i can't exactly get there easily or go after school..
i did get my license though, so next year around this time i plan on buying a work truck and ill be set Thats a pretty massive wall. Without openings, im not sure if they will be cut after but still 12' high but what Chris? 50'


pics included

the brick ledge detail is a PITA. The main part of the wall is 10" and for the brick ledge is steps to a 6" block for 4" bearing for the bricks and we have to back cut the foam at and angle to allow for sufficient bearing on concrete. less foam= more concrete=more bearing

Beautiful day too. 15 degrees, t shirts and the view of Toronto is nice... i suppose

yea, today i was sorta out of it though, im not sure why but i atleast noted some stuff. Can you explain why the brick ledge is done like that? Is it to match the landscaping stairs going there? I think so.
