Materials arrive, batter boards & string lines set

We are using a time honored method of measuring the dimensions of the structure with batter boards and string lines and an old fashioned Pythagorean triangle (3-4-5 or 6ft,8ft, & 10ft) .

We cut stakes for the batter boards as well as “spreaders” for the footing boards in order to lock them in at 16 inches across (by 9.5″ tall).

Hopefully we’ll get started on the foundation footing in the morning, unless we get washed out by too much rain.img_6686img_6687img_6688img_6689
