With the concrete footings poured, it is time to strip the forms. As we remove the wooden forms, we are filling the foundation in with sand to the top of the footings and packing it firmly in place. All of the work we have accomplished so far on the site is now effectively buried. Electrical and data conduits, water supplies and drain pipes are now all hidden from view. There is a whole lot of "gold" buried on this site and you can bet there is a carefully drawn map so we can find everything again if need be!
