Looking for answers!!! Help!
Please look at our footer pictures? Does anyone have full gravel all the way around the footers as well as full gravel (5inch layer) throughout where the basement slab will be poured.?? I would love to know. As most of you know we are building outside a Ryan development ..an offsite build....which I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE....they have basically put us on the back burner and seem to be trying to cut corners .... We noticed at two other development sites they are building on that everyone gets a thick layer of gravel poured all the way around the footers as well as inside the footers so the basement concrete will have something to sit on.... If you look at our pics, we didn't get any gravel on the inside of the footer and very thin layer around the perimeter of the footers... When we confronted both our Pm and his manager they both said opposite things. Our pm said that we didn't need it and his manager said it was coming at some point...basically since we are off site they didn't bother to bring it over and obviously didn't think we would know...who would think we were stalking out other people's builds in other developments! Lol! But we did.. And took pics to show the difference.... I'm sooooo sick of their excuses!!! Do you have a nice layer of gravel layer before your basement floors are poured??? Please let us know.???
