Step 30, Mattone Barille

Do you place the rebar 10” from inside the 2x6 base frame or outside the frame”

Hi Norman and welcome to the BrickWood forum. Sorry for the late reply—we don’t get timely notifications on questions posed in the “GENERAL” category, but that’s our fault.

You may have already placed your rebar, but if not…measure your 10 inches from inside the frame. You want each of the four corners to be inset that far once your framing is removed, and the crucial measurement is actually between each of the vertical rebars.

If you’ve already measured from outside the form, they will be a little off, but should still fit once you lay your blocks. Measuring from the inside edge (the slab itself) will put them into the center of the holes in the concrete blocks.
