Bond Beam Prep and Claret Cups

April 8

The wooden form for the bond beam continues to grow. Soon it will encompass the entire house. Once it is complete and whatever additional steps involved are done (I am finding out about these steps soon), the concrete will be poured in the bond beam form and then, when the concrete is set, the wooden bond beam form will be removed and we will have a bond beam!



My camera battery was low so not many pictures of our hike this time. I will make it up to you, I promise. 🙂 I did make the cool discovery of a claret cup cactus close to the house and that was a big surprise! They are so much fun–bright, luscious, red (not a common color out here as far as I can tell) and just surprising!
