Update May 30th
Here's where we stand today. The first floor deck is just about complete. We should soon be able to move around and build the exterior walls by setting earth blocks in place. The trash dumpster on site is starting to fill with cement bags, water bottles, protective plastic, pieces of cinder block, and now carpentry scraps. We'll have to order a "pull" soon to get a fresh one.
The support columns are nearby, still needing to be installed. They will hold up a pretty heavy house. Tomorrow the CEB crew will be back at it around 6:30am and will work until it looks like rain. Thunderstorms are forecast for the afternoon. We'll work to cover the cover the deck with large plastic sheets before it starts.
