Building Process Video 12
Concrete Slab Reinforcement
Concrete slab foundations are a very common foundation type in residential construction, particularly in the Southwest United States. Different areas require different types and degrees of reinforcement. In Southern California, for instance, damage from earthquakes has pushed municipalities and the State to require much more reinforcement than similar building projects in adjacent states.

STAY TUNED, MORE TO COME..
We will be continuing our Building Process Video Series for the next several months. The typical residential project takes 4-6 months, however, our Las Vegas Project is a 10,000 square foot custom home. It will take a total of 12 months to complete. While it may not be exactly what most owner builders are undertaking, it will demonstrate the building process that is common to all projects.
Remember, these videos are brief and fairly general. They are meant to familiarize owner builders with the building process. There is a lot of additional education and experience that an owner builder should seek out before starting their own project. As they say, knowledge is power.
Our goal is to show owner builders that a complicated, enormous custom home is built the in same way, using the same contractors, subcontractors, steps and materials, as the smaller, "simpler" projects that most of us plan to build. Of course, there will be unique challenges that may not apply to an individual's owner builder experience. They will, however, hopefully address another's issues.
I hope the videos are enjoyable and informative. I am still learning how to shoot and edit video. As time goes on, I will probably go back and re-edit some of the videos I have already done.
