In this update I will talk about getting ready for excavating for the Stehr House. We started the writeup of this ICF house on Aug-12-2006. Kevin worked on clearing the site on Aug-24th and 25th -- clearing all the vegetation, shrubs, and trees from the location of the house. Gary had told Kevin to keep all the trees that could be kept, and remove only that would be in the way of building the house. The long winding driveway from the private access road to the house indeed would make for a scenic route.

Dave Dotson and I had started staking out the house earlier this afternoon so that Dan could start work on excavating the basement. I have proposed using the monolithic slab -- combination basement slab and footings. And for the walkout portion where there wouldn't be enough soil cover, we will have a trench footing filled with stone at the bottom and of course a thickened concrete edge for the slab.

We are considering the option of construction road closer to the house for ease of access for heavy equipment, and ready-mix concrete trucks. I am going to discuss this further with Dan, Dave, and Gary.

Pictured in front of the wooded lot are Dan Olsway -- subcontractor for excavation, access road, the driveway for the new house, and Gary Stehr, the Home Owner. Not in the picture are Dave Dotson who was earlier on the site today, and Charlie who is working with Dan ... Picture 1
