From Breaking Ground to Raising the Roof
It all started on a sunny day in Freeville, NY. We marked our territory and Lily used the shovel to break ground on our building project. After digging the footers, we built the forms for our foundation.
Here we set up our construction site in our future common house. With a stretch of the imagination, you can picture a building in this space.
We attached PEX tubing to the rebar with twisty ties so that we could have hot water running through it in our future concrete slab floor.
After installing plumbing, rebar, gravel, PEX tubing and insulation, we were finally ready for the concrete pour! Concrete day was one special day. We worked till dark by the headlight of the tractor and waited for the concrete to cure. And finally, we have our foundation.
Next came the frame.
