It’s getting pretty bloody cold up here!!

The final form placement is done - it was a bit tricky doing these last ones as they only engage the columns by 200mm or so and need to be braced solid but we’ve managed it and are on the home stretch.

I can’t imagine being able to build these walls without the bobcat. Up to the 4th course I’ve been able to pour soil into the forms using the bobcat alone - I can tip the bucket into the first three courses, and I’m able to get the bucket over the top of the 4th and then open it. This means we’ve only needed to shovel soil into the final course, and that’s only ramming down to 120mm deep so it’s not much penalty at all.
