Arrgg!

I had thought that I'd gotten all of the bits of wood shoring and whatnot out of the foundation a couple of nights ago, but as it turns out there was more of it than I thought.

When I began to dig out the wood that I knew was under an area between the garage and the main house (this spot will be located under the stairs and was left open so I could run radiant heat out to the garage and the concrete apron). I quickly discovered it was worse than I'd thought. Where I had been able to spot a single piece of plywood shoring up the bottom of the ICF forms (where they crossed the dirt floor) I found two more 2x4s that must have been alongside the footers.

Sigh.

I didn't have time to dig everything out tonight, so I just got the plywood bit out. It's a good size too; we'll probably use it as a scab for the window wells as we get those ready for the next pour. The 2x4s I found are deeper than I can move without doing a lot of digging, so that's something best reserved for a weekend day.

Grumble grumble grumble...

Looking at the gap from the garage side, you can't really see anything.....
...but as you can see on the house side this chuck-o-wood was wedged in there just WAITING to attract bugs.
