    Love that wall setup.

    Going to go pretty fast, looks like you have perfect weather for those walls to go in.

    I may remember why I went to the other end of the shop, I'm just afraid once I get there I'll forget how to get back!

    Very cool! Great pics on the foundation wall install. This has likely been asked already, how are they attached to each other?

    I think those are the Xi walls. The R-5 walls shown on Superior Wall's site have concrete studs with a wood nailer insert. These studs all look like galvanized steel stud facings to me.

    Got some more pics of the rest of the install, which I think answers the questions you guys have.

    Prepping the area where the 2 car garage goes:



    Running the plate tamper after getting close to level:



    Setting temporary horizontals bars to the exact height using laser level:



    Scraping to get exact levelness:



    Setting first wall:



    Setting 2nd wall:



    A little further along:



    And the final piece:



    They were gone in 30 minutes and all that was left were a few bags of trash:



    Couple of angles of the completed foundation:





    How garage walls are tied in with basement wall:



    View in from the walkout basement:



    View inside the basement. They plan to put down styrofoam 2 feet out from all walls that will have less than 2 feet of back fill dirt on the outside. Everything else will get a 6mil plastic barrier.



    Inside basement looking out:



    R Value of panels:



    How corner pieces are tied together:



    How straight pieces are tied together:

    Really appreciate your photo documentation of the wall placement. Almost like being there and very educational.
    Thanks.

    the construction of the foundation was most impressive. a couple of questions, if i may: 1) what is your sense of the total elapsed time from showing up on site to leaving? this was all done in a single day, correct? 2) do you know what the cost differential between the superior walls foundation that you have and the "typical" process of forms, concrete trucks, etc?

    Trucks arrived at 8:30am. They left around 2:00pm

    Regular basement with rough-in plumping, french door and 5 windows (2 double and a single) would have been about $25k. This was about $29k. So $4k premium, but well worth it I think, since the basement walls are fully insulated and ready to be finished later, should one so choose. Also a lot less mess on site, not to mention much faster. There are conduits built into the walls too for wiring, including around corners.

    AMAZING! And great photos.

    From what I read, you don't have to waterproof the outside either, it's already done.
