Progress… and a thumb

We have officially completed the tires for the house (this was actually reached about a month ago)but acknowledged yesterday. Now we have been doing the tedious work of concreting the CRAP out of them. We have poured at least 6 pallets (56 bags per pallet… 336 bags of concrete) and still need to order at least 3 more to finish the concrete work to the rest of the house build. We are probably one good work day away from being able to put the outer walls up that will support the roof.

Then the roof goes on. Hopefully we can get the guy to come out to do all that. Hopefully. We can do it all ourselves, we just don’t want to.

The great ladybug infestation has also begun. We are hoping this isn’t a sign that bad weather is coming.

Lastly the work has been moving slowly because last Wednesday I fell while pouring a bucket of concrete and smashed my thumb with said bucket filled with wet concrete. I ended up with 8 stitches and an order not to use it for at least two weeks. I guess I’m going to have to slow down for a while. *sigh*
