I also spent the morning digging a trench for the footing in the garage floor only to learn that it needed to be filled to re-level the floor with gravel. And it was deflating to see the John Deere dig out the trench in two scoops after it took me a couple hours the first time.
|Joe's gift upon his return from Mexico was a truck that wouldn't start and was buried a foot in the mud. It got me worried the concrete trucks wouldn't be able to get to the house. But all went well.|
|They were able to send the concrete across the garage and all the way across the house without wheel barrows and without having to take out any basement windows.|
|It required a Rube Goldberg assortment of chutes, but it worked surprisingly well.|
|The front gable is up! Amazingly, the house actually looks like my 2D drawings. Tomorrow the front porch will be built. Then I can really compare it to my drawings.|
