September 28th...Food for Thought....

Today I decided to check out another possible vendor for the wall. I stopped by Standard Supply in Gaithersburg, having seen some concrete block in their window on a previous visit. I found they had a large indoor display of various concrete block solutions, and spoke with Kurt Lucas, who gave this Ani a lot to think about. For starters....that brown looking block in the middle there...each one weighs over 90lbs!!! Yikes! And we thought with the sandblasting done the worst we'd have to do is dig! The block next to it weighs about 70lbs though...more manageable. Kurt spent quite a while talking with me about the process, equipment we'd need, and tried to work up an estimate. Unfortunately, our situation (as usual) is unusual, so we'll be following up with him to give him measurements and photos...But overall it was a very informative visit. Posted by Picasa
