Eric is much more precise than I am, so he was in charge of the positioning and the leveling.
...I'd fill in the cement.
One by one, the posts were set.
Penny is starting to get suspicious about all of this activity....what are those humans doing?
We had ordered a pallet of 30 bags of cement. We thought that we had ordered the kind that you could dump into the hole, add a little water, dump some more cement, add some more water....and it sets in an hour. We realized with the first bag that we had gotten the cement that had to be mixed first. Rats.
Do we return all those heavy bags of cement, pick up more and waste all of that time or go with what we have and make the best of it?? We went with what we had. I made a quick trip to Home Depot to get a mixing tray and we dug in. Add some water, mix with a trowel, add some more water....
It might seem like Eric was doing all the work with the placing and leveling and all that stuff...but someone had to haul the 60 lb. bags of cement from the garage to the back yard....that would be me.
