The Footings For The New Kennel Are Being Prepared


The company doing the building were very pleased with the site prep we had done. The company who hauled in the clay and packed it did a great job as you can see by the condition of the trenches. They were clean and hard with not even close to a cave off.
 
This shows the 'lines' (orange string) they had installed for the plumbers and electricians to work from. When this photo was taken the footings were in and already set and the drains and water lines and electrical had been installed and ready for the cap to be poured. The pour will be difficult because of the drains in the garage, the hall ways and the slopes in the kennel area.

I am so happy to know what hauled, packed, trenches, footings, pour, etc. all mean. Ron has set up many a foundation around our various homes. I've watched him and his buddies stand in the pour wearing hip boots and spreading the cement as it pours out of the truck. Looked like fun to me but they acted like it was real hard:) I'm guessing your pour will take a little more work than a few guys with shovels.

Looks like it will be nice and big. I'm wondering where is that building that is on the left as you come in? You know, the one that had the big Blogstock sign on it?? Is it still there or is it gone to make way for the kennel?

Looks like construction is going on well!

even more impressive was the fact that you could drive a cement truck 7 feet from the trench full of concrete without caving it it. we use to wheel barrow it in for that reason. how nice for the workers to just guide the chute!

Looking good, Cliff. Will it be ready for our toy poodle to stay at the next blogstock?

Did I let you know that Adi, our beagle has died?
Adi was a very good dog (link)
