Precast Foundation System
Project: Cabin in the Woods, Episode 1, Part 1
Bob begins this project in a woodsy setting, and, alongside contractor Bob Ryley, discusses plans for the tiny, romantic weekend getaway cottage to be built on the site. The crew gets started right away with the new pre-cast foundation system from Superior Walls of America. The latest in streamlined septic system is installed the same day, and the crew gets started framing the first floor deck.

- Bob discusses a new foundation system that doesn't require a concrete truck being on site. The base is leveled with crushed stone which serves as a subfooting. The steel-reinforced wall is then lifted into place.
