The footings were left on the site, and at a later date we spray-galvanized their metal plates. While moving our footings out to the site, we came across a possible problem: mud. Because of recent rains, the small road that runs north-south on the site was a mucky mess. We were more than a little concerned that when it came time to have gravel delivered, the trucks would get stuck at the entryway. We talked about putting down rock on the muddy areas just for the vehicles to pass safely, and we were worried about leveling the site in those conditions. Fortunately, the sun came out for a couple of days and worked its magic: everything dried up and was solid for gravel delivery and leveling purposes by the weekend.
