Hopefully, it’s not too cold yet to lay block.

  Many years ago we laid block at 20 degrees for a high. The mud was like soft serve ice cream coming out of the mixer. We mixed calcium chloride in the sand and anti freeze
in the water.
 I think the houses are still standing. :scared:

Around these parts you're good until about Christmas.  Then you mostly have to worry about rain.  Good to see some forward progress!



That's going to look nice!

Yes, shameless plug for Lee, as he was the designer for said project and was very instrumental in getting this project off the ground.

At this point, Adam realized, “Crap, we didn’t the car out of the garage first.”  :D

My mason asked me that yesterday when he dropped the block off.  He dropped his trailer at the top of the grade, then hand unloaded the block for this door from a dump truck right in front of the door.  At the time, the doors were closed and no one home.  He texted me to say he had dropped the block, then asked " you do have your truck out of the garage, correct ? "  Of course, I replied with " Ah F@#%"  :trollface:

Now it's really too late to turn back

Existing driveway slope torn up to give fill something to grab hold of, otherwise that blacktop would just help the fill slide down and put more pressure on the block wall.


Daughters new room, as her existing room will become a mudroom/entry from the new garage.


Garage footers dug on Friday, forms built Saturday, inspection on Monday and hopefully Tuesday at 9am concrete pours !  And funny how this all timed out, I'm off work next week so I get to be home to document all the fun

Only closing up part of it.  There will be a stairwell down from the new garage floor. 

Crew entrance... There's some block to lay for the stairwell, then it will get closed up as part of that procedure, I'm sure.

Plenty of earthen fill to put in...plenty of time to take care of any recalcitrant inspectors, local political opponents, Union bosses, or Sicilian "businessmen"

Don’t bury them under your wall or slab. Causes foundation problems as the body decomposes.

Engineer already has that figured in.  Piers and grade beams to support the floor

Speaking of piers and such, rest of footers were dug today.  Forms go up tomorrow, inspection Monday and concrete pours Tuesday at 9am !
