MAY 14 UPDATE

THE PROJECT IS MOVING ALONG. SECOND FLOOR WALLS ARE ABOUT COMPLETE

ROOF TRUSSES SHOULD BE STARTED NEXT WEEK

REMEMBER, THE FRONT IS FRAMING, NOT CONCRETE BLOCK

AS YOU CAN SEE, WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RETAIN THE VERY LARGE WINDOWS FOR A GREAT VIEW

WE SHOULD BE UNDER ROOF BEFORE RAINY SEASON.

OUR CONTRACTOR HAS BEEN DOING A GREAT JOB.

APRIL 25 UPDATE

THE EDGE FOR POURING THE SECOND FLOOR IS COMPLETE. THIS WAS A VERY TOUGH JOB AS ALL HOLES HAD TO BE FRAMED IN TO PREVENT LOSS

CONCRETE WILL BE POURED MONDAY MORNING AT 7AM

THERE WILL BE NO TRAFFIC ISSUES AS ALL ACTIVITY WILL BE CONFINED TO THE SITE

THIS WILL TAKE A WEEK TO TEN DAYS TO CURE AND THEN THE BACK AND SIDE WALLS WILL BE BUILT USING BLOCK

AFTER THAT IS COMPLETE THE FRAMERS WILL BE ON SITE TO ERECT THE FRONT AND SET THE ROOF SUPPORT.

THE FLAG STILL PROUDLY FLIES

MORE NEXT WEEK

HOLLOW CORE UPDATE 2

THE CRANE WAS SET UP AND READY AT 7:30. THE FIRST TRUCKS ARRIVED AT 8:15

WORK CONTINUED ALL DAY WITH VERY FEW TRAFFIC DELAYS.

ALL WAS COMPLETED BY 4:30, INCLUDING GROUTING. ALL THE SEAMS BETWEEN THE SLABS ARE FILLED WITH A GROUT THAT FORMS A BOND

FOLLOW THE PICS AND CHECK THE PROGRESS. THE CONTRACTOR DID A GREAT JOB

THE NEXT STEP IS FRAMING THE SECOND FLOOR TO GET READY TO POUR THE SLAB. THIS WILL BE A TWO INCH POUR ON TOP OF THE HOLLOW CORE BASE. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN FOR ABOUT 10 DAYS AS THE GROUT MUST CURE.

A LOT OF PROGRESS THIS PAST WEEK. ALL STEEL WENT UP. THE WINDOWS HAVE BEEN FRAMED IN. THE FINAL CONCRETE BEAMS WERE POURED, AND HAVE CURED.

THE STEEL BEAMS HAVE BEEN SHORED UP SO THE HOLLOW CORE SECOND FLOOR CAN BE DROPPED IN PLACE THIS MONDAY.

THE SCREENED PORCH HAS TAKEN SHAPE WITH THE ROOF BEAMS IN PLACE.

THE HOLLOW CORE DECK FOR THE SECOND FLOOR WILL BE PUT IN PLACE MONDAY. WORK ON THE SECOND FLOOR WALLS WILL BEGIN THIS WEEK AS WELL AS POURING THE SECOND FLOOR PLATFORM.

APRIL 4 UPDATE

THE FIRST FLOOR WALLS ARE COMPLETE AND ABOUT HALF OF THE STEEL HAS BEEN ERECTED. ALL WALLS HAVE BEEN FILLED AND THE LARGE CONCRETE BEAMS AT THE SOUTH END ARE FORMED AND POURED.

NEXT WEEK THE REST OF THE STEEL WILL BE ERECTED AND THE FORMS KNOCKED OFF THE CONCRETE BEAMS. THESE BEAMS WILL ALLOW US TO HAVE THE VERY LARGE WINDOWS WE WANTED.

ASSUMING NO WEATHER DELAYS, THE HOLLOW CORE PIECES WILL BE DELIVERED MONDAY THE 15TH. THEN WORK WILL BEGIN ON THE SECOND FLOOR.
