With the foundation wall up it is time for the start of what it will be supporting.
This is a wood frame platform style construction so in order to begin they need to attach it to the foundation wall.
This is accomplished by bolting the bottom of the frame, to the cemented in place anchor bolts.
This is called the sill plate.
Notice how the wood of the sill plate is not allowed to make direct contact with the cement.This is done by placing a foam sill gasket in between.The foam comes in rolls that remind you of a big roll of tape.100 feet each in this case.
When looking at the picture you will see extra space,as the brick veener will sit here.More on brick veener later.
