Once the old building has been removed, we pour a concrete slab. The new building will measure 16'x8'. The slab is 6" bigger all around to support a rock veneer that will go about 26" high all around the building.

A new little project getting started here. This old sauna building is coming down to make way for a new one. It is a small building, 16'x8'. The piece of property is on a lake in St' Louis County. The ordinance allows us to build a sauna of this size as close as 75' from the lake shore, so we didn't have to worry about just tearing this whole thing down and replacing it, (we are about 80 feet from the shore).
So, down it comes...

I know it might seem a bit insensitive at such a time in the world, but I don't take the meaning of these coincidental events lightly, so I thought it might be worth posting here.

I don't know why the link above is not "clickable", but if anyone wants to see it they can cut and past it to their browser...
