Preparing the forms for concrete

Today is a fairly routine day for the concrete crew from Koball’s. They arrive and align the walls, then make room for the concrete ready-mix trucks from the plant in Rushford. The forms are topped off and pillar bases inside the house are squared and filled.

Other commitments kept us from watching the action today, but Nancy was able to visit the site later in the day to snap a few more pictures. Here’s how it’s going ».
