I went to Menards to buy more top soil to build up the foundation and wanted to keep Dusty from digging. So I created a river rock border. The grass clumps in front will be replanted around the front of the border. The AC and the water barrel will be leveled out soon.
I knew leveling, squaring, and permanently securing the base was going to be a tough job. I spent about 2.5 hours on it last night and realized just how out of shape this 43 year old body is. I’m not used to crawling around on the floor, in and out of braces, and contorting my body like that. Another hour or so on it tonight and that part will be complete. Then on to the second level with more plywood cutting.
The base floor and frame are in place. The plan for tomorrow is to level and solidify frame with construction adhesive and drywall screws. All of which needs to take place before the first playoff game starts.
