Re: Bridge Pictures.


I was using rubble in the technical masonry sense, not the general usage.

I don;t really do concrete work. Only time I'm around re-bar is doing commercial block work and we drill holes for dowels and set them after the first couple of courses are laid then drop rebar from the top. First day I was out there I was man handling a few 100lbers while scrambling on top of a precarious rockpile. Looked down and decide those buggers needed covering cause it would be gross to have one sticking into my guts or neck. Tennis balls at the dollar store were a good investment

Take your bug repellent. I think that area of Ontario is home to about 80% of the world's mosquitos.

Only way you can sit outside is to sit beside a big fan.

Re: Bridge Pictures.


Are you building from both sides of the form inward? To keep the stresses on the wood even.

Not yet. But we'll be starting in the other side tomorrow. So not course for course but section for section if that makes sense. It;s only been about 4 courses that have been past 45*, before that there was almost no weight on the centre.

Re: Bridge Pictures.


Been a while since I updated. Got the first keystone in yesterday. Hotter than snot here the last few days so only working 1/2 days (you southerners would probably laugh but I was close to passing out this morning...any exertion and I was getting light headed) I wasn't at the site much in July since my last post...other jobs and a short vacation got in the way. Since Aug hot though I've been there most days. Found a kid to help a bit so that's speeding things up a little. Also the owner has been there quite a bit so with 3 it goes faster...weird I know

Made a dent in the stone pile. He's bought another foundation which we hoped would have arrived by now but it hasn't. The quality of the stone has gone down quite a bit and there is a lot of searching for appropriate stones....too much searching

The tall one is the keystone
Bridge pictures.-dsc03782.jpg

Jack the owner...he's been pretty nervous about the weight on the centering. He's quite relieved now that we have more than 1/2 the keystones in place

Bridge pictures.-dsc03785.jpg

Another month or so and it should be done. So long as this weather breaks. I may have to take another week or 2 off though to get at some other projects. nce the new batch of stone arrives I'll be much better able to proceed at a reasonable pace, not having to spend so much time searching for rocks

Re: Bridge Pictures.


It's for driving...there's quite a bit more stone to go on top. Another foot or so on top of the keystone and the haunches will have probably 2.5' more material to smooth out the curve

Where in Ontario? I know Ontario is about 1/3 the size of the US. But I'll be heading up next month for the Canadian Dry Stone Wall fest. PM me if you don't want to post the addy.

It's in Almonte...1/2 hr or so west of Ottawa. Perth, where John Scott teaches, is fairly close
