Insulation in two layers, totalling 200mm

Forming rectangular holes under each
wall panel
The upright concrete wall laid
patiently, bucketfull by bucketfull.
No concrete lorries in our road!
All done now with rectangular holes...
these will take threaded rods and
steel feet for the wood panels
...then discover we cant get the square
washers, so bury the threaded road with
bolts only
Make sure the threaded rods are perfectly
vertical in all directions
Each stainless steel rod has two nuts
at the base
