Ready to Pour

The newly dug crawl space under the old house beams, has one side ready for a concrete pour behind a plywood and 2" X 4" lumber form built to move along the old exposed rock foundation for reinforcing. This first pour took several 1/2" steel rebars and 16; 80lb. bags of concrete mixed in our old cement mixer which has now been moved to Christian's old farm.

There are three piles of what was excavated so far; big rocks, sifted rocks and mostly clay dirt. The clay Bill will try to make pottery from when he's much less busy.

When we are all not too busy, a walk to Christian's stream through the meadow is a nice break.

At the end of the day, a climb on the old combine to view the fields or fireflies at night is what Christian and Leif like...
