Going up, part 2

Spent the day putting up the form boards for the sidewalls of the barn.  each board is varying length and 2' wide.  The cleats are attached to metal rods that go through the form.  these cleats aren't tightened; we're still adjusting the forms and bracing them.  You tighten them by pounding them down; the 'ramp' of the form will cause it to draw tight. 
 We'll use a concrete pump truck to put the concrete into the top of the forms.  The sidewalls will be about 10' tall when we're all done.  Probably pour end of next week. 
these form boards are pretty simple -- pieces of 1.25" thick plywood.  I like simple.
