The cabin begins

November 15, 2012

Before the road trip even began, we had discussed building a cabin on Chandler’s parents’ land. This would be a place for visitors and maybe a temporary place for us to live in when we get back from our bike trip. We don’t know where we will end up but we assume we’ll need a month or two before we get readjusted.

The first day was spent clearing the area, deciding the orientation of the cabin and staking it out.

We decided to put in a sonotube foundation with 6 piers. The next day we made a few adjustments to our staked points and went to rent a gas powered auger. The auger was used to dig out the holes for the cement piers.


Our goal was to go down 4 feet or get to ledge. We hit ledge on all holes except one, which we got down to 4 feet.
