The truck came with 4 loads and we had it all spread in 2 hours. Was supposed to be 40 min between loads for us novices but they came two hours late and dropped all loads in 2 hours. 30 yards later we had inside of barn mostly under control and a pad on outside of barn. Next day I had another 6 yards brought to lengthen the outside pad so we can park boats outside during the summer when we need more room. One of the bays slated for a hydraulic lift had extra thick footings with rebar put in.

So now we have the sides, soffits, light panels and skinned sides. Next is electric, install man doors, and am working on custom hangar doors. It has been a hard year for us with the unexpected loss of my sister, kids adoption issues and the loss of my mom over the last couple weeks. My parents house is across the street, my brother next door to them and my other brother across the field so we are close to assist them but were certainly dealt a few blows over the last 10 months. I just try to keep moving and doing what I can to make some progress.

So here are a few photos (sorry, not in any order) of the concrete, the progress and direction we are going to get this all done...... The last photo is what I get to see from the house. A pretty tail that is hard not to notice. And a lot of work for a bit of tail....... Not complaining, it is worth it......
