Finally, the foundation!

At the end of August we were finally ready for the foundation to be poured!
Iain and I stitched together tarps, so we'd have them ready to lay over the cement as it cured.  Keeping it protected from direct sun, and keeping it wet, makes it cure better!

The first truck arrives, and the cement is wheelbarrowed into place.

This looks like hard work!

Wonderful to have family around to help out, since Iain and I couldn't be there.  My cousin Leon has experience with cement-laying, and kept an eye on things.

The finished floor; doesn't it look gorgeous?  And our little cousin Hope put a 2011 penny in, to christen it!
