I've been busy making the forms for the foundation for the last few days. Easy but monotonous work. I started by ripping 27 sheets of 3/4 inch CDX plywood in half. Then, like I was building a two foot wall, I cut 2x6's (2@8', 4@21") and screw the whole thing together. One form takes about 15-20 minutes. I have about 50 to make, and I'm more than half done.

Still waiting for the ground to thaw. Temperatures in the teens at night aren't helping matters. Between the frost in the ground and the posting of roads, I'm beginning to wonder when a foundation will happen.
