2nd tier of thermal wrap, Cisterns in place!

     Today was a big day in that we accomplished putting up the entire 2nd tier of the thermal wrap, backfilled it, leveled it off, and moved the four 1,700 gallon cisterns into place!  It looks so much taller now!  Onto the 4th course of tires...

3rd course done, ready to put up the 2nd tier of the thermal wrap

Laying some gravel as a base for the cisterns behind the thermal wrap

Gravel laid and leveled... now for the cisterns!

Slowly bringing them over on the tractor

All four cisterns in place!

These will eventually be buried and collect and store rainwater for our water supply
