An ongoing journal of building an "off-the-grid" solar homestead, life, boring tedious stuff, knee-jerk eco-socialist opinion, work (as little as possible) and family---from the edge of the wilderness (where the Sierra meets the Cascades).

Two Days of Work: Three Posts and the Footings poured
The first three Posts are up and attached to both the pad and the cabin.
A side view.
We also have most of the footings poured. We did compromise and used a bit of hand mixed concrete over the rubble...
A footing with the rebar...
The trees are down and stripped (a neighbor volunteered a couple of his trees in order to help him out with a firebreak for his house). Most of the footings are done. And three poles are up.
