The concrete was poured for the footer yesterday. They’ll wait a few days before coming back to do more work. The pictures never seem to give a perspective so today, I’ll try to show you where some of the buildings are located.
I’m standing kinda on the northwest corner of the greenhouse and facing southeast. You can see the newest chicken run and our home in the background.
This photo is facing kinda northwest. The truck is pretty much northwest of the greenhouse. There will be double doors on that north side of the greenhouse. We chose this location because it get almost full sun but has some afternoon shade, it was easy to get the water and electricity to it here and I can drive the RTV through that gate, come down a path through the woods (same path the neighbors use to visit and the concrete truck came down it), and load up the RTV with plants to haul back and forth from the garden to the greenhouse.
While the concrete guy was here, we had him pour concrete around the water storage tank. The original plan had been to just have sand around it but critters kept getting in there and digging and when we had 5 or 6″ rains, they washed the sand out so Vince dug the base out around the tank, formed it up and poured concrete. It should be there for a while!
One thing leads to another . . one project leads to two more! Some day we’re going to get everything done . . no, that never happens. There’s always more to do.
