Erecting Exterior Wall Forms And Aligning Them To The Wall Form Corners

Erect the rest of the exterior wall forms and filler panels, and nail each of them to the bottom plate with 50 mm (2 inch) nails. On the inside top surface of each wall corner form, nail a 38 mm by 89 mm (2 inch by 4 inch) block and attach them together with a string line. Run a test block between the string and exterior wall forms to align them to the corner forms. The test block and the two corner form blocks should have the same dimensions. Nail the forms to the top plate and brace if necessary. Layout and install blockouts, window bucks and door bucks. Insert the Easy Strip tie bars into the form panels and insert the waler bars through the ends of  the ties that protrude out of the exterior wall. Tie any required rebars into place.
