4x4 inside poured concrete

How can this be corrected. Exposed 4x4’s inside the poured concrete.

They did that to nail the sheathing/siding to.

I suppose it could be parge coated or some other thinner material than the siding would be my thoughts…but that was very poor planning. :flushed:

Better question is how does something like that pass foundation phase inspection from the building department. I mean come on, this is not China or India!


Not saying that is ok,but treated lumber should last longer yes ???

4 DIFFERENT CONCRETE FORMS AND THEIR USES Through me off. Looks OK. Let others chime in.

What I found out this am. The pierce county inspector has never seen this and said it would have to be engineered with a thicker foundation used to attach siding over the foundation. So I will be calling the city of Edgewood to get a better answer. Thanks for chiming in.
