June 30, 2018 – Before I could put up the batter boards I needed to backfill the plumbing trenches.
After I put up the boards I pulled some string lines off of the existing cottage walls. I determined that the cottage is officially 4 1/2 inches out of square. We had to expect that after almost 70 years in the damp river environment. Well, as Troy says, “We gotta build to what’s there.” So on with the show!
With the string lines in place we can proceed with the footer layout.
