Day 1&2
14th/15th of Aug 2020


Foundation Type : Strip Foundation

Strip Foundations provides support for structures, transferring their load to layers of soil or rock that have sufficient bearing capacity and suitable settlement characteristics.

So we started today with :

1. Clearing the grass

2. Setting out

Setting out is the process by which information is taken from construction design drawings and pegs, profiles or other marks are set to control the construction work and ensure that each element is constructed in the right position and to the correct level which we have achieved.


3. Earth Excavation

This involves the removal of the layer of soil directly beneath the topsoil. The removed material (referred to as 'spoil') is often stockpiled and used to backfill the foundation such as strip foundations.

Concrete blinding

Blinding is a thin layer, usually around 50 mm or 75 mm (2 or 3 inches) thick, it is usually a weak concrete i.e Lower Grade of Concrete or sand that is laid above a layer of hardcore to provide a clean, level and dry working surface. Concrete Blinding is the most Common Form of Blinding.

Day 5

Tuesday 18th Aug 2020

1. Completed footing rebar erection.
Footings are an important part of foundation construction. They are typically made of concrete with rebar reinforcement that has been poured into an excavated trench. The purpose of footings is to support the foundation and prevent settling.

2. Foundation wall
The foundation wall is a solid wall attached to the footing and rising to ground level at the point where the ground is highest under the building.

Materials used
Total 6" Blocks 2,000 bought
Cement 4bags for mortar used
Cement 4bags for concrete used
Water 200ltr used

Details
2000 Block @125= #250,000
Cement@#2,430x8= #19,440

Backfilling the foundation

backfilling is the process of replacing or reusing the soil that is removed during excavation to strengthen and support the structure’s foundation or any other structural member.

Material used
8 trips of laterite

Details
8 trips of laterite @9000 =#72,000

Labour
Backfilling the foundation #30,000

Day 9

Saturday 22nd Aug 2020

Completed the backfilling

Watering backfill
Watering the backfill during foundation construction is very necessary too. During watering the soil layer settles drastically. Good also we could get Course Grained Soil for backfill, such does not settle much during watering.


Compaction of the soil

Purpose of soil Compaction:
The principal reason for compacting soil is to reduce subsequent settlement under working loads. Meanwhile In general, Soil compaction is defined as the method of mechanically increasing the density of soil. In construction, this is a significant part of the building process.


Material
2 trips of laterite

Details
2 more trips of laterite @9000 = 18,000
Full tanker load of water @5,500
Total # 23,500

Labour
For compaction ( workers choose to work for free)

May the soul of the tipper loaders who happened to be my supplier's boys rest with the Lord Amen. They died instantly after sand collapsed on them at the place they went to load sand on Monday 24th August. Currently my supplier (the driver)who became unconscious as a result of the collapse was rushed to the hospital. May the Lord have mercy and resuscitate him in Jesus name !

This is beautiful. Your work is neat and precise. The calculations really shows you are well experienced in building. I've only seen few threads that break down cost like this. Most of them are like galleries, they can only show photos, logos and phone numbers. Good job, i'm following this to learn. Thank you.
