A Basement Is Born

The birth of the basement came forth as that of a child. I hope that the process doesn't slow down. Immense progress was made today. The work of laying block was assisted by a friend of ours. I preferred the stone work over laying cement block. It was a little frustrating to keep the blocks level and flush in three directions at the same time. With a little more practice, or a lot, I hope I will be more proficient at laying block. We have a long row to hoe and a lot of cement to mix.
