Foundation Forms

Finally, we are starting the foundation. The concrete pad will sit in a 12″ (30cm) bed of type 4 expanded polystyrene. The bed is made up of precut forms, which are slotted and glued together. The team are starting with the most difficult part: the north-east corner, where most of the plumbing for the house is located, which means that holes need to be cut in the polystrene.
