The bagged dirt and rebar construction for the foundation/slab is identical to what they did for my house in San Antonio. I'm not a concrete guy, so I can't explain why they do it that way. It gives the equivalent of reinforced concrete beams under the load bearing walls.

Attic Stairs

you just might want to make that opening in the
ceiling to get into the attic a little bit bigger.i made mine
4 ft square.you never know when you just might need it.
the opening to the attic at my house is 2 ft with folding attic
stairs,what a pain in the ### at christmas time getting down
all those lights & everything else.that 4x4 opening at my garage
has been a life saver.i know that i have to use a ladder when
i go up there but it is worth it.it is just a thought.my garage
is 32x40--2 10x10 overhead doors & a 36 in man door.
your garage sure is looking good,enjoy it. BOB

I got the biggest set of attic stairs I could find.
It has a rough opening of 30"x60" and the opening is about 25" wide.

Good choice in windows. Especially good, considering I work for the company that made them.. You should be pleased for many years to come. The rest of the work is coming along quite nicely too.


In a while, Chet.
