This is our "cement truck" ;-D. That's Marvin filling the hole around the base of the rebar. The rocks in the trench will become part of the foundation. We will use a total of about 1,200 bags of cement, . The columns being set now will go up through the floor of the second level and the 2 ft of rebar that are not in the concrete will become part of the column that goes up to the roof. The extra rebar on the second level will be twisted around the base of the trusses and tie the roof to the house. This house is hurricane proof, mud slide proof, and earthquake proof, or so I am told.
