Year End Progress

As 2006 draws to a close, I wanted to post this photo as a snapshot of where I'm at to this point.

There is still a lot of stonework to do, but my calculations show that I was masoned 35-tons of stone so far. This figure includes the stone, sand, gravel, slaked lime and Portland cement.

I estimate that the stone stem wall will use 50-tons of material before its complete, and I then can begin the adobe (cob) walls that will define the stucture.

My back is doing fine :) Happy New Year!
