how long should full crawl space foundation cure?

How long should a full crawl space foundation cure before framing? The addition will be a single story 16X24 foot addition? There will also be an additional 10X12 foot addition on the second story of the house added to the exisiting home. How much time do we need to allow the new foundtion to cure to support the weight?

If it is set up enough to pull the forms it is cured enough to build on. Once the board is installed on the bolts in the concrete the board takes all the weight and distributes it evenly over the foundation. No problem...build away!

should wait 24 hours before you strip the forms. i would wait a few days before you back fill! for framing, go for it. we pour building slabs in the am and then frame another floor by the end of the day here in nyc! if your concrete is dry enough for you talk walk on frame away!
