We have such great friends and helpers. We hadn't seen them (Randy and Tracy) since the trusses went up via crane that they wanted to see us badly. We said so sorry, we have to get keep laying concrete block, so they said fine, they'll come out and help. Couldn't ask for better friends. 


So while the framing was nearing completion, we got to laying the concrete block for the perimeter walls. We made the mistake of not having our rebar embedded in the footings so we had to drill holes to insert that, pain staking slow! For the block laying itself, it went pretty fast all the way around. We didn't mortar the blocks themselves, instead dry stacking them and then filling every other hole with concrete/rebar or gravel. Then on the outside we used a fiber reinforced motor that gets spread all over the outside to give it strength and make it appear like a smooth wall on the inside. The specs on the mix said it does wonders for strength and we felt with the rebar and concrete inside the cavity of the blocks, we would be good.
