DAY 2, Friday July 25th

Today is the biggest concrete-pouring day of the project. By day's end, the home footings and the garage walls will be poured and drying -- ready to cure out over the weekend

7:45 AM: Jason (Ivan's nephew, a Marine recently back from a six-month tour
in Iraq) and Alex line up the inner form for one of the
garage stem walls.

Sonya is aligning the southwest corner of the form,
while the guys continue working on the north wall.

Before I arrived this morning, the crew had already begun wiring in the rebar for the house foundation.

From the "reference" point, our progress so far.
