Off to buy a truck load of pebbles for the foundation.
Pebbles are hand shoveled onto the truck. No bobcat to scoop them up and load them.
Most everything is done by hand.
Two different sizes pebbles were purchased.
2 truck loads of larger pebbles — $230
1 truck load of smaller pebbles — $414
First piece of hand machinery I have seen. The machine is compressing the foundation land.
A tank of water was brought for making cement.
12 liters of water — $110
100 bags of cement — $551
