Well, these may not be around 900 years from now but the concrete that will be formed by them very well could be.This is the shape that our raised hearth will be. It will end up being about 12″ thick. That’s going to be about a yard of concrete. The wall behind it will have a stone face.This is the framing for what will be a TV cabinet. What I am hoping it to create a mechanism that will lift the TV out of the cabinet so it can “hide” when we are not using it. Of course we could purchase one but that would go against my creative spirit. (not to mention the amount of money in my wallet). But for now, when we get a TV, it will sit on top.
Anyway, the cement truck should be arriving on my birthday next week. We decided to save our backs from mixing concrete.
