All new constructions begin with the footings.

Footing requirements are generally covered in the building code and sized in accordance with the bearing capacity of the soil and the weight of the building.

The actual installation of concrete footings varies greatly from job to job. Sometimes footings need to be formed, many times earth forming works fine (using the Backhoe bucket to neatly excavate the footing size in the soil). Obviously, the foundations on a building are critical from a structural standpoint. Check back and follow the progress of this project

Floor joist being built to "code"

When a builder "builds to code," he adheres to a set of rules that, for example, dictates the length and spacing of floor joists so that you'll never have to worry about the floor breaking.
