Concrete slab completed

I stopped by after work yesterday and saw our finished slab.  Next week framing will start.

Is this normal (pic below)?  The metal piece inside the concrete (exterior) wall is exposed.  I'm afraid water can get in and rust can form.  Also can start cracking the concrete since there are so many opening.  Was it done on purpose or just a bad job?


  1. Hi Cloud!
    This happens when they pull the basement walls away! At some point they will seal all holes inside the house with this orange sealant. I was concerned about the same thing. You can always ask your PM. One of them look very large and i certainly would check with him but the others look normal. Once it was painted it looked much better.
