Pouring the Footings!

The red & white Ozinga truck showed up today, to pour the footings for the home and garage additions!!  You can see the “keyways” cut into the middle of the concrete they poured.   The keyways help the pieces lock together better when the foundation walls are poured on top of them.

I don’t know if I’m more excited about the progress on the house, or the fact that there is a concrete mixing truck on the property!  When I was 4 or 5, I really wanted to drive a concrete mixer truck.    Perhaps I can at least sit in one tomorrow!!!  *Fingers crossed!*

Hint:  don’t call them cement mixer trucks!… Joe has informed me that cement is the glue that holds the concrete together, but that concrete is what is actually poured.  Who knew?
