First a secure foundation needs to be laid:
|Rebar will make the house sturdy|
The majority of the work was done by hand.
|Mixing concrete by hand|
|Mix that concrete!!|
The "chicken coop" where Sweetie's sister and her family were living during the construction was not totally horrid, as you can see. (In the pic is a neighbor girl.)
Lots of rebar should help make this house very sturdy.
|Hooray for rebar!|
|We love rebar!|
Things are going well, so far. We just hope we don't run out of money before the house is complete!
