August was a very hot and humid month here. Pole barn got underway, still waiting on electric, garage door, and floor. The floor of the pole barn is going to have pex tubing in it for heat. First they will put down 2 inch foam insulation. Then either wire mesh or re-bar not sure which yet. Pex tubing will be fastened to mesh or re-bar. After that 5 inches of reinforced concrete will be poured. When they come and do it I’ll be putting up pictures.
The contractor did come and work on the driveway, and put stone base inside the barn.
I started to put insulation in barn to get ready for electric service to go in. The insulation I choose is a closed cell foam board 4′ x 8′ x 1 1/2″ with a R-value of 9.8 foil on both sides.
Got some time on the backhoe also. opened up and made bigger a drainage dig above the barn. So far I have about 3 hours total running a backhoe.
That’s all for August.
