Slab looks good! Not cut out for manual labor? Looks like you are! One more slab to pour and it's all downhill from there!

Got concrete (masonary) blocks delivered today. Dry stacked two rows and its looks pretty good, looks huge though! I used a grinder to remove the 'dags' from concrete moulding process that make them not sit flat on one another. This made them sit alot flatter with less wobble and hopefully less concrete will spill out of gaps.
Ill post a photo of the block stand tomorrow when theres more light.

Here is the progress so far. ( i have actually changed it slightly since photo to leave an opening to access rear storage area.

It is looking really good Justin, and I think you will really like the additional access to the storage space as well

Looks good Justin!

I hear ya on the "after work" build process. It takes a lot of motivation to stay at it after a very long day. Not to mention that it's dark now by the time I get home.....Don't get me started on the daylight savings time of the year.

Good luck and keep up the hard work!

Bill
