I have been a supporter of Paul's book and have been lurking in the background.
I've also been very busy the entire summer, digging by hand, setting forms, and pouring concrete.
I poured a total of 6 concrete pads, 6 ft x 8 ft for a total of 228 sq ft under my lower 12 ft x 24 ft deck.
I also built brick walls on both ends, put in a personnel door, and have done framing.
I have done skills I have not done before. Brick laying looks easy on YouTube. But I challenge you to try it yourself!
And all this is for a shed that shan't be seen. I have been taking pictures all the while when I have been doing this work.
I'm surprised a lot of people wouldn't even know how to do some of this. The skills I have been doing could be used to build a cottage or even a house.
So maybe I'll write a book about this when I'm finished. I want to get finished soon as it's starting to get cold outside.
