sometimes, it gets a little messy

Well, we are back at it after a LOT of rain last week!  The guys poured the concrete walls yesterday.  Lizzie and I went to watch and have some of our own fun.
This contraption is what is known as a 'pump truck'.  This is used to take concrete from the concrete truck and put it exactly where we want it. 


Lizzie play in the dirt

and.......  wipes her hands off on me. 

Here is the pump truck in action - john is holding the hose and the concrete is coming out of that into the ICF forms.  so much easier than dumping concrete into wheelbarrows, somehow creating a maze of staging to get up the top of the walls, and then dumping it in, one wheel barrow at a time. 

Here it is - the walls all poured.

Lizzie approves.
