Foundation Walls, Imprinted

The 8" thick, poured concrete walls were poured mid-afternoon in perfect weather today.  The forms come 8'-4" and 9'-0" high, I was told, and our walls are 8'-6" so the workers set the tops down from the form's upper edges and troweled the final elevation smooth.  This will help ensure a gasketed, air-tight seal between the concrete and the wood plate.

I secured this mould to the upper inner wall of the utility room.  We'll see how it turns out.
