Framing & Footings Progress

October was a great month for construction, dry and sunny.  The project is still running a little behind schedule but they are working from dawn to dusk and Saturday mornings taking advantage of the good weather.  Winter is coming.

The top of the tornado shelter was recently poured. It is noticeable when looking at the live feed. They are now working on prepping for pouring the floor of the 2nd level.  They will place corrugated steel as the base and frame forms around that.

Recently the west and south footings have been poured.  The east footing will come last when they are done with using heavy equipment in the interior.

They are also starting to fill in the framework with metal strips that will hold the exterior walls.

It might not be noticeable but they are also working on plumbing digging trenches and setting pipes.

They hope to have the entire building enclosed sometime in January and will then work on brick laying throughout the rest of the winter and spring.  More Photos

Construction Video September 16-October 15

It a was better month weather-wise for construction.  The day after September's Fall Festival, the first load of steel arrived. Besides steel for the two story portion of the building, cement slabs were set in place on the cinder block tornado shelter.

Construction is currently about a month behind schedule because of all the rain we had this summer.  Hopefully mother nature cooperates the next couple of months so that the building can be enclosed before a predicted wet winter with a delayed spring gets underway.

Time Lapse 30 Days of Construction

Lots of rain the last month but construction continues to move along. The structure so far consists of the elevator shaft and the portion designated as a force 3 tornado shelter which consists of  the study hall and one religion classroom. The day after this video was completed a load of steal arrived and was unloaded so expect some major progress coming soon.
