I forgot about how the curb squirrels hate machine gun kelly. lol.

One of Jim's oldest friends was over on Friday. He builds skate parks and he had to head back to Oklahoma or wherever but wanted to stop by so we had a fire. Jim did so much crazy shit that I had forgotten about the fun wall, which I had never seen because I can't skate and never pursued skateboarding as a hobby.

Jim's peer group made a DIY skate park in some abandoned lot in the middle of Cleveland (which they never finished) funded by selling weed and skate merch. It was in a scene in a move called "The Land" which I haven't seen and featured on some show http://pressurelife.com/new-vice-series ... cleveland/

The media attention got it bulldozed. Never got to see it.

Concrete guys came over yesterday.

They're going to finish the form and stone today, I think. Pour sometime next week.

Earth mover reduced the amount of tedious manual labor by a lot.

They're planning to pour the concrete tomorrow. I was thinking that a trellis of some sort along the walkway might be a good idea.

I've got the framing done on the other step. I have to pick up a few more pieces of decking.

Just have to finish and stain the skirt/apron and the build will be complete.
