Foundation Construction on Small Lot Subdivision Project

If you live in Los Angeles, you've certainly noticed the unusual five straight days of rain we've been having. While the rain and holidays have slowed construction on the Cullen Street Homes Small Lot Subdivision this week, we thought we'd fill you in on the foundation progress from the last few weeks.

Let's start with the form work that was in on 12.06.10

Once the forms and rebar were in place and passed inspection, the foundations were poured. Photos below are from 12.10.10.

Foundations for Home A. Everything looks very small at this stage. The skinny rectangle in the foreground is the stair up to the second floor.

While we were shooting photos of the foundations, LADWP was installing a new fire hydrant across the street. The developer had to pay for this new fire hydrant as one of the permit conditions.

After the foundations were in place, prep work began for the ground floor slabs. Photos below are from 12.15.10.
