Locate the points on the corner boards by drawing a cord from one board to the other, bringing it directly over the nails at the two corners on the same line; these points should be accurately marked on the board by a notch, or by cutting a shallow groove with a concrete saw. This cord represents the outside line of the concrete foundation; the inside line will be indicated by measuring in a distance equal to the thickness of the proposed foundation and stretching a cord between these two points: Carefully mark these points on the board in some way different from the marks showing outside lines. A plumb-bob suspended from these lines to the ground will indicate the line of excavation. A form made like Fig. A, Plate 33, measuring 10 or 12 inch on each side at the top and a little more at the bottom, being sloped so that it may be lifted easily off the concrete, is a very useful form to make and keep around. Concrete piers for the foundation of small buildings are easily made with this type of form. The top level of the form can be regulated by putting blocks under the handles of the concrete form.

The hole for the base of the concrete pier should be 6 or 8 inch bigger each way than the form, thus allowing the concrete to spread as shown. Concrete forms for taller concrete piers should be very strongly braced all around each side by pieces of 2 inch x 4 inch material spiked together and spaced about 18 inch apart. Concrete columns over 6 ft. in height should have yokes of 4 inch x 4 inch material, held together by bolts and side pieces held in position by wedges. These should be spaced about 20 inches apart. These concrete columns should be reinforced with 3/4 inch iron rods. A concrete column which is to carry no great weight may have the concrete forms removed inside of 48 hours. Fig. B, Plate 33, shows a simple box form for concrete column footings. The drawing is self-explanatory. Fig. C, Plate 33, shows form and method of casting a concrete foundation for a gasoline engine. The foundation consists of a block of concrete resting on a firm sub-base, with anchor bolts properly set, by means of which the engine is held in place. Concerns manufacturing engines usually state the length of anchor bolts, the location in regard to each other, and the size of the concrete foundations needed for the various sizes of machines. Plate 34 shows three different types of concrete foundations. Sometimes because of the nature of -the soil, or possibly because a team and scraper are used in removing the earth, the concrete walls of the excavation cannot be kept perpendicular. In such cases concrete forms must be placed for that portion of the foundation below ground as well as for the portion above, if there be any.

Unless concrete forms for the whole foundation are to be put up at one time, it will be best to build them flat on the ground, in units of convenient length, and then erect them in place. By having the concrete forms constructed in this way they may be removed and used again, with the minimum amount of concrete damage to the lumber. In building concrete forms flat the stringers should be carefully leveled and the uprights and sheathing carefully placed in their correct relative positions, otherwise the concrete forms will be askew when erected. If the concrete forms are to be built in position, first place the stringers shown at the bottom of the inner form (Fig. A), so that when the upright 2x4's and the sheathing are in place, the inside face of the sheathing will be in line with the inner face of the proposed Concrete wall. .Nail the lower end of the uprights to the stringer and attach the top board of the sheathing to hold the vertical 2x4's the proper distance apart. The frame must now be plumbed carefully and held in place by the braces extending between the upper end of the 2x4's and stakes driven in the ground.
