Thanks! The purpose of the building is to be a storm shelter/root cellar. Mostly storm shelter, though. We'll keep provisions to last a week or so in case we get trapped. Considering the tornadoes last week, we are in a hurry to complete this. They were way too close to home (and all around my dh's workplace) for comfort. At least he will know we are safe. We'll have a NOAH weather radio in there, too.
We worked on back filling what we've done so far on Saturday. Sunday we took the day off, and starting tomorrow evening (urgent plans tonight concerning our meat rabbits) we plan to complete one course each night. We'll be adding more door frame support, and our lower ventilation on either side of the door before we do the next course. We did not get anything done last week because we got hit w/a flu bug (probably because we were so exhausted). I will be sure to update the photos and welcome any and all questions. We are so excited about this project!
I will also be updating on my FB page. If you are interested in friending me for that purpose, pm me.
