Insane

Today’s blog post begins with Harvey from River Rock Redi-Mix, now semi-famous and very important in his role in building the BARn at PRBC.

Unloading concrete at the end of the South side.

In addition to providing much needed concrete, Harvey helped Brian load rebar for the floor out at the concrete plant.  When he delivered the concrete he was very friendly and helpful.  Thanks Harvey!

The South side of the BARn will be the main entrance, the stairs to the tap room, the grist room,the office and storage.  We got Harvey’s mud, and tonight…drum roll please…we have completed the concrete floor in the BARn.

Joe screeds the floor at the end of the barn.

Under Joe's critical eye Brian got to use the bull float.

And Reuben was there helping, too.

Ta-da!

Tonight  after spending two days pouring 25 yards of concrete, Brian happened to be at an event where he saw a doctor friend that’s been following our grand adventure.

When she saw Brian, she quickly diagnosed him, “You’re insane.”

She followed that up with a big smile and “in a good kind of way”.

Her comment made us laugh.  When you’re doing something like this, being told you’re insane might make you want to high five the insane person or people you’re adventuring with.

So it’s time to share one of the things we’ve been thinking about in doing all of this:

The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something.  It’s as simple as that.  A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to something about them now.  Not tomorrow.  Not next week.  But today.  The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.  –Tom Asacker

So we may be insane, but we’re having the time of our lives.
