Yesterday we got a delivery from Menard’s with most of the heavy items we will need to get started in building the greenhouse.
Each of the cement blocks weighs 38 lbs, so I would have only been able to move 25 blocks per load. This represents then about 8-9 trips to the store. Having it delivered is a bargain at almost any price.
We have been digging the trench for the footings and we are almost complete. I covered the dig yesterday to hopefully keep most of the rain out of the trench. The rest of this week is temperatures in the 90s with 30% chance of rain, so I will hope to fall in the 70% chance of no rain and finish off the trench Thursday so I can pour the footings on Friday. I will plan to finish the trench and lay rebar on Thursday.
I keep waffling over the size of the footings. The latest thing I read said to make the footings 16″ wide rather than 12″ wide.
