Oops… Blowout!

Well, that didn’t go well. We were pouring the concrete into the column and it had a blowout. The pillars moved a fraction of an inch and there was nothing left supporting the stones we put in. Frank caught the small wall of stone before it collapsed but it all had to come back down. You can see in the pictures the gap between the stones and the pillars. All the concrete we just poured had to be removed as well. Guess we get to start over on this 4 foot section of the column. Practice makes perfect!

    Oh no! This was too nice of a day for something to go so wrong.

      Yep, it kind of ruins the day. It will just look better now since we have already done it once.
