6-13-2017 Ledger and Concrete Footings

Today we left for Chicago for a week
to spend time with the boys
and help our son build a new deck. 
We will get to celebrate my birthday,
Fathers Day, and my grandson's 3rd birthday while here!
We left home with this storm chasing us all the way to Chicago...

Grandson helping Opa hold the board.

The guys wrestled all day with this 2 man post hole digger
to dig the concrete footing holes to the proper depth...
well, almost...
as deep as the rocks would let them go!

Concrete was mixed and shoveled into the tubes in the holes.

First day of work done...
ledger boards up and concrete footing poured...
worked 12 hours in 95*F temps!!!
