Foam, Rebar, and PEX

After the gravel, the next step was to lay down a vapor barrier and cover the entire footprint of the foundation in a 2" thick layer of foam panels. 

Next step - take rebar...

...and tie it up in a grid.

Those red tubes you see there is PEX for the hydronic heating system. It's tied to the rebar.

All the pipes feed into the mechanical room of the house:

After this work gets approved by the city, it can be buried in 8" of concrete. This will hopefully happen later in the week!
