I have to admit, at first glance, it doesn't look like we got much done. You might be thinking "Whoopti-doo, they just put down some wood to make the floor. Well, there was more to it than that...
We had to put 12x12x2" paver bricks around the perimeter and up the middle of the floor platform to make it level and to keep it from sinking in the dirt and becoming un-level in the future. What a pain! And when I say "pain" I mean pure physical pain! We had to dig under the platform boards and position the bricks, then pound dirt under the bricks with a rubber mallot to raise or lower it depending on what the little level said. And, despite what everyone may think of me, I am NOT 1/2 a bubble off, I am .2 of a bubble off!
But it was a beautiful day, unlike the day before when we had to light up the fire pit to stay warm. We are hoping to be able to get the lumber to do the walls on Sunday and Monday.
