One step away from setting the footings

We measured the diagonal lines from one corner of the structure to the opposite corner and had to make some adjustments.

Then we prepared the footings and rebar for the vertical steel post supports for the deck and staircase.

We also lined up the footing area with rebar every six feet so that it will be easy to lay down the 2″ x 10″ boards in a straight line.

During the day we ran a pump to remove water from the foundation ditches. There was way more than I thought but am optimistic for tomorrow, with the hope that I can call a footing inspection for Friday.
