Starting the foundation
So this last weekend, I intended to get the foundation footing forms setup and ready to go. Good idea, but I don't think I understand how much time I will need to spend getting the forms setup, the rebar cut and in place and I certainly don't think I can do the concrete pour by myself.
So I did the next best thing, I stayed busy by prepping the rebar, getting it cut and bent.
So now that the rebar is ready, I think I am going to call around and find out how much a foundation contractor would charge me to come in, setup the forms and install the foundation. The concrete work seems really daunting to me, mostly becuse I really need the foundation to be square and level, and it's concrete, so you only get one chance to do it. If I mess up, it'll be too costly.
