Cribbing begins. why do they call it cribbing?

Aug 4, 2010

The cribber started!  Yay! Whenever there are gaps in time between one activity and the next, it feels like forever. I can't believe how slow it is to mobilize certain people- and how start/stop motion it is.

Why do they call it cribbing? Wikipedia wasn't much help. Anyway, Ken the cribber started forming the footings. I changed the footing design somewhat, causing a delay in starting because the materials from the lumber company [Nelson Lumber] didn't arrive. I wanted the load-bearing inside wood stud wall of the basement to land on the footing and not the basement slab, as I had originally drawn it. Hopefully, this will limit the slab movement and cracking to the base of the interior wood stud wall.
