Posted by Steven in Colorado Springs, CO on 6/2/2010

While the plumbers were busy digging up the nice flat floor that the excavators had backfilled and packed solid just a couple of weeks ago to install the underslab water lines, Colleen spent her day doing some quality work starting to build the ICF window wells.

(Lest anybody wonder why the heck I let Colleen do all this work rather than getting my own butt out there, let me hasten to defend myself by noting that I was hard at work today earning money for this fondly-named Woodcock's Folly. So there.)

I noted a couple of days ago that we'd decided to build the window wells out of leftover ICF blocks, since we were going to have such a hard time finding more-conventional frames, and as soon as I saw these pictures I was very glad we had. These wells "feel" right for the size of the house, proportionally-sized but not feeling cramped at all. Of course, she's not done as of these pictures, (she had some shovel work to do first since the Bobcat just wasn't safe working that close to the back wall) but she's not that far off, either. After the wells get built, we'll need to strengthen them with some rebar in anticipation of the eventual pour, and then later after they're poured we'll come around and cement in a covering of local stones to make them look more natural. 

It's an awesome start though--did I mention just how danged talented this woman is?  :)

Partial window well around the apartment bathroom window. There was more digging to do here than anywhere else, due to the relatively low roof.
Looking down the back of the house. The large window well is in the foreground (with the lovely Colleen) and the kitchen window well can be seen in the distance. Note the pile of partial ICF blocks scattered about.
