Barred and Ready

Tomorrow at midday, rain or shine, we will get our first delivery of concrete, for the footings of the retaining wall. Yesterday evening we finished up the last of the rebar in one quick work session.

Rebar finished on the small U side

Things went reasonably fast because Noel had had a fit of work on Friday afternoon and bent up all the column pieces we'd need. And with excellent timing, too, because just as we were finishing up the sun was setting and it was starting to rain.

It's starting to look and feel like a wall. Tomorrow will really make a difference (then we have the long slow slog to build the formwork).
