House footing forms Day 1

Last Wednesday we got off to a great start working on the footings for the house. John D. compacted the crushed stone and John S. and I assembled the outside boards. Adam meanwhile worked on putting up batterboards for the garage as well as cleaning out the pit more. Our form boards came from Renew in Brattleboro. They are recycled 25′ long douglas fir rafters.
