Kentucky Shop Build
« on: August 04, 2015, 09:57:06 AM »
I started my detached 30'x44' stick built garage fall of 2005. The objective was to get my project car, an FFR cobra replica out of the attached two car garage so we can fit the drivers in there. We had to take down about 20 large, old-growth Ash, Hickory, Walnut and Maple trees. Hated to do that but it all went to a good use. The green Hickory went to a well-known barbeque place up in Cincinnati, the Walnut was set aside for a future woodworking project and the Maple & Ash we are still burning in the fireplace.

Fast forward to: Early Fall 2006:

Excavation for the driveway & footers, its surprising how fast the pros get it done.  Excavation and footers poured on day 1.

That's what most of the redi-mix plants use around here, very common.

Two days after the footer was poured, it rained. Hard. I had to drain water and mud out of the excavation and believe me, it was a mess. No pics of that, I don't want to remember...

Forms about a week later.
