After all the back and forth with the insulation underneath the slab, it still wasn’t clear if the insulation was going to be thin enough around the edges for the rebar to be embedded deeply enough in the concrete. It was fine in the center, but still a little thick at the edges. But the engineer and the city both came out to inspect, and gave us the green light to pour. The radiant barrier was put down (at right), and the final rough slab, and the steps in the wine cellar were poured.
That is almost it for concrete. After this, it is only the final color concrete with the radiant flooring to put down, but that will come during the finishing steps much later – now the framing lumber is starting to arrive!
