I had a concrete truck and a big pumper come in to do the footing pour, but I mixed and poured the concrete myself for the four column footing pads inside the building. You can see them in the center of the picture with the prongs of the the CB88s sticking up out of them. You can also see the start of the concrete block foundation wall in the far corner.
When it got too cold to do masonry work, I began stockpiling concrete blocks in the building site. I would haul 30 or 40 blocks up there in my pickup each week and then carry them up to the building site from the pickup parked just off the White River Road. Here you see me carrying one in my Trapper Nelson backpack up past the trailer.
Here I am continuing on up the roadway with the concrete block on my back. This picture and the previous one were taken from about the same spot on the hairpin turn in the roadway.
One by one, over the course of the winter, I added to the stockpile of about 700 blocks that I needed.
