Cement footings are poured!

Thursday was the day we poured the footings for the wall and the greenhouse.

Michael was able to figure out a way for the cement truck to get down to where the greenhouse is going to be so we could pour footings and also footings for the terrace wall we are building.
For the wall, we had to have the cement truck fill up a wheelbarrow so they could move it up the hill.

Michael was smart and used the lawn mower to pull the wheelbarrow full of cement!

Here they are pouring the footings for the storage building and wall for the greenhouse.

The finished footings for the garden storage shed and greenhouse wall!

Michael figured it was a 9 1/2 foot elevation difference from where the cement truck was and the top where we started the retaining wall. You can see that with this photo of the wall footings.


  1. I am very curious to see how this all turns out! You've got quite the challenging slope there.

  2. I want to see a picture of your house from the bottom of the hill look back up it. Were you singing "how firm a foundation" all day long?
