Starting to Lay adobe

I’m prepping the foundation today with concrete and mortar to create a level surface to lay the bricks.  Once that sets up I will start laying brick and post some pictures.  Here’s another picture of the foundation with the railroad ties in it.

I stapled down the tar paper and will concrete over the edges of it to help create a better seal.   It’s starting to get cold up here at nights so I’m in a hurry to get this done before it becomes too cold for the mortar to set up properly.  I will keep you posted.  It should go fairly quickly from this point.  (famous last words)

Oh, and here’s a not-too-close picture of the wild horses grazing on my land.
