The guys got most of the forms put up for the concrete today. When they quit it was too dark for good pictures - okay, it was very dark - they only had the end two to finish, and those were half done, so it shouldn't take long to get ready to pour.
Looks like a lot of raised beds for a garden, don't you think?
The concrete will go around the outside and through the narrow sections. The box where my husband is standing is the space in between where we will be pouring concrete. There were a lot of stakes to drive into the frozen ground.
You probably can't tell from this picture, but the man in the picture is using a pick axe to dig down in the ground - because it is frozen. That is the end that needs a little more work. If you can tell the forms are done in two sections of long boards. All the forming is done except for the right side of two of those rectangular sections. Pretty good progress in a day, especially for just the two of them. And it was COLD today. Actually it's been really cold for a week.
Maybe you can get a better idea of where the concrete is going with this picture. Just look at the narrow spaces. That's where we'll be pouring - hopefully tomorrow.
Sorry to everyone looking for sewing and crafts. We're a bit distracted with the big move. I'll get back to that soon though. I've got a lot of projects on my to-do list, and my college classes will be done for the semester in a couple of weeks. On a side note, I hope this doesn't turn into a fiasco. The mover originally told me he would be on the road with the house by the day after Thanksgiving. I talked to him today and it turns out that he hasn't even been to the house in NC yet to even begin preparing it. I'm not real thrilled with the fact that he didn't mention that to me before.
