Catching Up - Part III: Foundation

Once the footings were dug and the concrete was poured, it was time to lay the foundation. Our blocklayer, John, is fairly unique. He's a one-man-show. Mixes his own mortar, carries his own blocks - he does it all. That makes the process a little bit slower, but it also allows for a higher quality product in the end.
