Basement & Garage Slabs Poured

The workweek got started at the Oakley Home 2.0 site on Monday with the basement and garage concrete floor slabs being poured and jointed. The joints in the floor are called 'control joints' because they are designed to control cracking to occur within the joint line instead of random places throughout the remainder of the slab (concrete will crack, so controlling where that will happen is the key). Other details of note include sloping the garage slab to shed water out the garage door opening and recessing the slab at the garage opening as an additional safeguard against water backing up into the garage. Below are images and panoramas showing results from the day's events.
