Well the gravel is finished and packed, the vapor barrier is completed and the 2x4 framing is finished. as you view theses pictures you will see that the 2x4's are drilled and rebar has been driven through them the rebar extends through to extend beyond the outside wall by one inch it then has almost 2 ft extending to the inside this now supports the wire mesh. See below. Now one section at a time will be poured with cement. Tom will be sprinkling a cement dye (color Leather ) on the top and leaving it to sort of model a little, then I have a natural rock pattern form that you press into the cement to cut a pattern with. The sections are almost 4ft in width. See pictures. (tomorrow we start pouring - rented a cement mixer)

 

I totally appreciate the advise from SluryGuy and my other friends on Cheap Shelters  yahooGroups.com

See how the wire mesh sits up on the rebar? it works.. locks the walls to the cement floor pad. Locks the 2x4 framing to the Cement floor, locks the roof to the cement floor.

You'll see how as I gert the framing up.

 

 

 

We are mixing and pouring off the floor so that we do not have to carry the mixed cement so far...

 

 

 

More pictures in a few days... after we pour about half so you can see it better
