Erecting And Aligning Interior Wall Forms

Erect the interior wall form corner panels, insert the ties and thread pieces of waler bars through the ties. The interior corner panels are narrower than the exterior panels by a distance equal to the thickness of the foundation wall. This keeps all vertical joints on the exterior and interior form panels in align with each other. Erect the remaining interior wall forms and filler panels and attach the remaining waler bars. Place the joints midway between ties, and at different locations on each row. Do not join waler bars at the edge of a form panel.

Attaching Cleats To The Top Of Wall Forms To Hold The Sill Plate

Attach predrilled cleats, with anchor bolts, to the top of the form walls to hold a 38 mm by 89 mm (2 inch by 4 inch) sill plate after the concrete has set. The anchor bolt diameter should not be less than 12.7 mm (one-half inch)  and they are placed no more than 2400 mm (7.87 feet) o.c. apart. They must be located between the wall studs when they are nailed to the sill plate.
