FOOTINGS FOR COLUMNS AND WALLS

After the excavation, we have fabricated our steel reinforcing for the column and footings. Once set in place approximately 2″ above a 6″ layer of choker rock within the excavated holes, we pour cement. After the column footings are poured, we pour wall footings between the columns and start with the concrete hollow block. The hollow block walls are tied into the reinforcing rods for the columns to ensure walls will be properly supported laterally.
