Steel Beams Installed
Today’s visit shows bright and shiny, strong and load-bearing steel beams incorporated into the foundation. Too wet and muddy to get close-ups.
Trenches dug down the street for wires and cables. Foundation waterproofed and back-filled.
Next step is to pour the basement floors.
The House “kit”
Bundles of factory-assembled building blocks are delivered and rest in large bundles across the street from our budding home. Each pile of pieces is labeled with “1 of n” and our lot number. Many more kits are no doubt on their way.
Our 2017 warm February has brought a suddenly bitter cold and snow-filled March. The weather folks are calling for 8″, 10″ even 20″ of snow this coming week. Surely this may slow the great progress we have been recently seeing.
