Greenhouse Delivery

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.
