Cross your fingers

We're off this morning for the set. Had a bit of rain last night, but hopefully shouldn't be a problem. Lot's of pics soon.

Res4 notes some inconsistencies b/t the engineered drawings and the actual foundation pour - we'll have to review those with the contractor today and see what sort of problems they present.

I for one would be curious to know what those inconsistencies are and how they are resolved. One of the big concerns with prefab would seem to be getting the contractor to build the foundation to exacting specifications since it's a little late if you're intalling the module and the foundation is off. (At least you have the luxury of keeping the module on site which is not something that everyone considering such a project would have.) I am assuming that a foundation that isn't in accordance with specifications could compromise the structural integrity of the module and possibly void the module's warranty. Also, what kind of structural support is being used on the front side of the foundation that is not concrete? Thanks and good luck today!

Anonymous - I've detailed these issues above. I'm not sure what the implications are for the module warranty as far as these connections go; I'll look into that and post what I learn.

The missing section of the foundation is a panelized wall that will be load bearing (approved by engineering).
