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!
