Laying the Beam & Block

Glossary of Terms



Laying the beams and putting the blocks in at each end

Due to the sixe and weight of some of the beams we hired a crane


Once the beam and blocks are laid then we apply a slurry mix


The slurry mix is sharp sand and cement in a wet mix that is brushed over the area and fills in the cracks and helps bind everything together.


We put air ventilation along the block and beam to allow air movement below the floor
