Preparation for Concrete Pour #2

I've been continuing work on the form for the foundation wall. I had to push off the arrival of the concrete truck for a couple days, but it is now scheduled to come tomorrow (friday) morning.

Some photos of the form:

Vertical and horizontal runs of rebar:

Interior bracing, to combat the force/mass of the concrete:

Exterior bracing:

I ran some PVC piping through the form. One of the pipes will be for the black water, and will connect to the sewer. The other two are just there for when I want to run electric and water into the house through the foundation (and whatever other lines I might need to run).
