Block stand coming up. After work before dinner job and in the middle of the sea-trout season. It is hard to find time for it all. BTW all materials so far are scavenged. If anybody should wonder why I use blocks of different sizes. Will have to buy the last 15 blocks though

Let me second Russell on the great start and the scavaging. My stand is 100% used block. I get a kick out of scavaging (scrounging) for building material.

On filling those blocks, I have a little tip that helps on small projects. I made a couple of scoops from 1 gallon jugs during the course of my build. The first one I used to fill the cells in my stand. It is flexable enough to get the the last drop out the corners of a wheelbarow, and it forms perfectly to fit the cmu cells for filling without spilling .

I later, used one just like it (the one in the pic) to mix my vcrete.

Nothing like a bit of 'creative upcycling'. After watching some of the builds here some folk would appreciate being able to get their hands on good 'rescued' materials.

A lot of beauty of some material is in the passing of time etched on its surface.

In spite of the low posting frequency, I am still active. Very much in my mind, but also in the physical world. Since my last post I have:
  • Poured insulating layer (vermicrete 100 mm - 4") and a perimiter of concrete.
  • Build a temporary roof to keep the rain out of the insulating layer
  • Bought a 2. hand professional wet cutter
  • Bought 140 tappered stones - leftovers from a proffesional project
  • Bought 65 regular stones for the floor
  • Made plywood template for the floor
  • Cut 26 tappered stones in halves for the 1. and 2. couse
  • Read hundreds of posts on fornobravo.com
