Ready, Set…Build!

Above are some photos from Friday April 24, our site prep day: scraping, leveling, and an initial stake-out of footing locations took place. Also, Knife River concrete in Eugene made 8 cool appearances on the site to give us  a large pile of gravel to be used in our floodplain fill. A big thank you to Knife River for their generosity and support of this project.

After the site was leveled, a few of us (with much hemming and head-scratching) staked out the footing locations, making sure they were as square as possible. We then set the footings out where they are to be placed. The next step: digging, placing our eight deep “dead-man” footings, filling with gravel, then placing our top footings. This should get us out of the ground in one weekend — can we do it? Yes, we can!
