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
