Concrete Pour

Last week, footings were dug for over one half of the basement and installation of rebar or reinforcing bars (a common steel bar used to reinforce concrete and masonry structures) begun. Concrete was poured forming the footings which are 8 feet wide and 4 feet deep. It took 10 trucks containing over 90 cubic yards of concrete to complete this task.
The photos are as follows:
