Today, I have included three photos of the work site from the past week. Let’s take a look at each. As always, click a picture to see it full sized.
Wednesday, July 1: I snapped this picture because of what’s happening at the back of the site. Last week’s photo showed progress on the concrete wall at that end of the future building, and I anticipated that there would be lots of cement trucks coming in and out as the wall was built. I was wrong! You can see at the back of the site an orange crane-type machine carrying a brown slab. The slab is concrete and was delivered on a flatbed truck. There have been a few of these delivered, so far. Notice that our remote-controlled friend has disappeared from the work site. I wonder if he will return.
Thursday, July 2: For the first time, a cement truck showed up on the work site! It was impossible to miss its bright yellow color. There were a few of them on and off the work site on Thursday, but I have not seen any since.
Monday, July 6: The maze of ditches at the front of the work site (bottom, left/center in the picture) has grown. I am still pretty sure that the red-topped rebar will help form the footings of the building. The workers have begun to build wooden frames around in a couple of spots. I think these will be forms for concrete to be poured.
Notice at the bottom, right corner the orange crane-type machine that moved the concrete slab on Wednesday. In this picture, we can see that it has two, large tines like a forklift. The two, green things in the same area are gasoline-powered generators to provide electricity. I have not seen these being used yet. Stay tuned!
