After the first concrete pour in mid-July, our basic layout started to take shape.  Here you can see where there will be a path along the west side of the house.  The back wall is now complete, creating a substantial divider between us and our downhill neighbor.  The effects of water on a slope lot are significant, and this wall is something that has been needed for quite a while.

Solid Concrete started to set up the forms for the BBQ and Fountain walls.  The 6″ high wood boards are treated with a type of varnish, then stacked evenly.  The concrete will take on the wood’s pattern.  Rebar is being set in what will be the middle of the concrete walls. I like the “chairs” that are used to keep the rebar from touching the wood.
