With all of the poles set, we decided to work on the footings that would go all the way around. We were torn between that or setting roof trusses, but decided concrete would be next as it seemed easiest. 


The thing to remember about footings is they are, well, foundational. If your footing is off, your wall will be off, and the roof will be off, your floor may look off, the list goes on. Get the footing level and smooth!

We tried to use something called fast footing, which is basically a plastic liner with lines on it so you can put it in straight and true. We used it for the taller footing portion, swore we'd never use it again, but now after processing what we did right and wrong, I'd use the product again now being more knowledgeable about it all. 

We only did half of the footing as that was basically one truck load delivered. Learn the proper hand signals before hand so you can seem like a pro when the truck gets there. I got caught up in my hand signals, I should have been focused more on the pour itself.
