Installation of the Foundation||September 9th, 2011|
In order to provide a rock solid foundation, 6x6 posts were installed four feet deep
into the footing boreholes. The posts were position with a wooden matrix to ensure that
they would align properly with the base.
If the idea of carrying 180 sacks of concrete from the home center, mixing it in a wheel barrow and
then pouring it into a hole is initimidating to you --- you're not alone. Thankfully, when Evelyn approached
C.A. Barrs and Rappahannock Concrete about helping out, they stepped up and gave us a much better job
than we could have ever accomplished alone.
Finishing what would have taken my volunteers a weekend to do in a little over an hour, these guys demonstrated the importance of using the right people at the right time. We appreciate their help.
Many thanks to the folks at these companies who came together to produce a fantastic foundation for the windmill.
