Water Pipes and Proofing

So over the last two days, water proofing and initial plumbing has been done.  I am unfamiliar with waterproofing techniques and my PM promised to call Monday with a quick lesson.  I am assuming that there is some kind of tar or other sealing substance behind these black "mats" that have been nailed to the foundation.  Also, we verified tonight the initial plumbing has been installed.  PM said that grading (and I am guessing the first plumbing inspection) will be done; Wood is to be delivered Monday too. Tuesday will bring concrete basement slab (and garage? idk).  Framing is scheduled to start Wednesday.  The only thing that may suck is if we get forecasted thunderstorms Wednesday.  I don't know if and to what extreme will they frame in the rain.  But I can see us having a roof on by this time next week.  
And as a bonus, both showers have been delivered.

I suppose this gives me an idea of how the side yard will be graded.


  1. Looks great! I hope the rain holds out for you. If they do get to start framing soon, you will definitely have a roof within a week's time. :)

  2. Sometimes work on your house runs ahead of work on mine, and sometimes it is the other way around. It's cool to have someone on virtually the same schedule.
