Again, it’s been a while since we have had a chance to really work on our house. We are almost finished with the forms on the East end retaining wall. After we finish that, the next step will be to start coating the foam boards with concrete release agent. These will get covered to protect from rain until we are closer to spraying the shell with shotcrete. We don’t want the release agent to wash off before then. Otherwise it will be a challenge to remove the foam boards from the interior structure. The forms will stay in place around the retaining walls which is why we have been able to put them up ahead of time.
Meanwhile, check out this cool panoramic picture that our new friend Randy Julian from Salem put together. The image might look a bit distorted because it was stitched together from 6 pictures but it does get the whole building in.
