    Preparing the foundation for concrete pouring

    On top of the gravel we laid a DPM plastic which was to go below the polystyrene sheets. We had to run to collect concrete blocks and block cut-offs to hold down the DPM from waving around and flying away in the wind before laying the polystyrene with blocks on top too.

    Next we bent the D12 steel reinforcing rods down, as well as cutting and bending new D12 rods that would act as perimeter rods. On top of the bars we laid the steel mesh on top, and cut to size for the flooring. We then tied it all together using steel ties and nibs.
