I'm surprised you didn't make those a little bigger.

Is this all happening, like, now? Are you able to pour concrete in this cold?

Leaves on the trees lead me to believe this was all taken in late summer...

D'oh!

The lack of white stuff on the ground is probably another clue.

So what, you're just going to give us a taste every day? Just keep giving us a little bit more each time? Make us wait and beg to see a little more?

That kind of is your guys' MO, isn't it?

This is pretty sweet so far, but I think by the time the pictures catch up with current day, you'll have sold the house already and moved somewhere else.

So, almost ready to fill the first 11' with 8" thick concrete!



Pouring the basement walls. Let me tell you, there was stress involved! Doing the work myself, there was no one to blame if it got ****ed up!




(and, yes, that is my buddy flipping off the camera!)

After that, it was stripping the scaffolding, and getting the ledgers installed for the floor truss:

In multiple places on the tractor it has stickers stating operator only. Oh well, 4 is close to 1, right?! Had to get those 35' trusses up the 2 tenths mile driveway somehow - the delivery truck certainly couldn't make it! That's me in the Kubota hat, taking the photo.



First few trusses set - damn they are awkward!










Fun times figuring this bit of framing out:
