The foundation walls are going up quickly

The foundation walls are going up quickly. As the frames are pulled away, everyone can see just how large the building is destined to become. If you look at the picture below showing the front entrance, there is a large orange fence visible near the back of the lot. That area will become basement storage at the back of the building. Beyond tha fence, there will be a reading porch on the main floor. As more concrete is poured, the scope of this project will become more and more tangible. The construction manager forsees great strides being made within the next 30 days.

Here, you can see workers wasting no time to set up the next set of wall forms for the next pour.

Don't even think about stepping on the worksite without one of these official "ALLIANCE" hard hats.

More views of the interior foundation walls can be seen below. The recesses at the top of the wall will allow attachment of floor joists to the foundation.

From the inside, it doesn't look as small.
