The BIG ONE!
Here is the wall we have been dreading for awhile. It's twenty feet long, our longest wall.
It took 5 days total, two for set up and take down of the form and 3 solid days of ramming.
Don't kid yourself, this is a lot of work! It's been 4 or 5 days and we're still beat.
Yes I put an engine behind a wheelbarrow, lol.
adding some lime
So this is what we ended up with after 5 days of hard work.
