Maybe it's just me and my lack of knowledge of the construction industry, but this looks to me like they're forming the front porch to pour concrete. I was pretty sure we were going to build it out of wood. Hmmmmmmm. I'll have to check on that.
On another note, here's those concrete stairs Darcy was forming yesterday. They're done enough that he can send an employee to come and finish them. It's cheaper for Darcy to go to work and pay one of the guys to come and finish them than it is for Darcy to do them himself. It's too dark to do it in the evenings and it needs to be done in the next day or two.
