    Day 23

    Came home from work today and noticed this sign on the road leading down to the building site:



    Could they have actually delivered and stood up the foundation today?

    Nah, but they did drop off 6 loads of gravel, so we must be getting close!

    Walls coming Monday
    Plumber Tuesday
    Pour slab Friday
    Start framing the following Monday

    For some reason this struck me as funny. Here we are on a website admiring gravel?!? Some could think that was a little strange.

    By the way, this thread is amazing. Great job.

    Sure Lutt! Here you go!

    Day 24

    The nice looking gravel has been leveled and is now ready for the walls to be set on it.

    The piles are gone!



    A nice thick base in the basement:



    Loaded up the rest of the cut logs for the final run to the mill. They fit just perfect. Was "only" a 14,120 lbs load though.



    He snagged it up in a single pinch and dropped it right onto the "hopper":



    I then went back and loaded the junk hardwood logs that nobody wants and transported it the 0.5 miles to my place (no, I would not dream of driving a load like that on a public road with a single strap!) There was more than I thought and I still didn't quite get everything. I'll clean up the rest of the pile over the weekend.
