Darin stopped by alone this afternoon, used his propane torch to finish drying the concrete blocks around the crawl space, then tarred the outside, and wrapped the whole thing with a thick-ish plastic sheet. The plastic sheet has bumps on it that will collect and funnel any water along the walls and down to the bottom of the outside of the crawl space.
He's going to ask the county inspector to stop by on Monday after which the site will be back-filled with reserved dirt. Darin's going to use the sand piles which were left over from installing the geothermal system to fill in the space under the new porch.
On Tuesday the wood should be delivered for the studs. Clicking on the photo will enlarge it.
