House 2.0 – backfill and garage slab

The correct foundation materials for the garage arrived this week (a few pieces were wrong, and had to be re-made – no big deal, and I’m pleased with how the situation was resolved). Today, they back-filled the foundation, and poured the garage slab.

Since concrete doesn’t wait to set up until you can fix your tools, the garage floor ended up being a little rough. We like to think of it as a non-slip surface. I’m looking forward to a garage floor finished to a higher standard:)
