We had a setback this week. The soil and structural engineer requested deeper holes for the steel posts anchoring the carport in place. There seems to have been a mix-up between what was captured in the plans and implemented in the field. So, the posts and rebar for the foundation was removed and digging re-ensued. The holes now are at a scary depth, especially the large one for the spread footing. In the process, a sewer line was exposed and had to be repaired: there was a leak at a joint that may have been pre-existing.
Now, with the holes at the right depth and the rebar grids extended and placed back into the holes, the steel posts were clamped in place (see photo) and leveled. The soil engineer approved this latest iteration and – yes, hold your breath – we are scheduled to pour concrete on Monday!
