Root of the Problem

Or the problem of the root. I’m beat!!! So I’m trying to get everything nice and level for the skids, two of them are on the existing foundation and the other two are slightly uphill from the first two. So I’m going to lay down pavers at the same level as the foundation, started trying to dig out the trench for the pavers and got the great idea to use my tiller. Aside from it eating up my string line, it went well enough until I ran into a root, this thing is huge so I’ve mostly dug it out and I’ll tighten the chain on the chainsaw and do what needs to be done.

Ground Work Begins

So one of the true rules of life is if you don’t start with a good foundation, you’re going to have problems. This is especially true of buildings including the shed. So we need to make sure we’ve got a solid foundation. I’ve got a poured foundation but this is going to be larger than that, so I’m using the concrete tubes to add a piling. Concrete pouring tomorrow.
