If you haven't seen changes lately, look again. . .

Several pallets of cinder blocks have arrived on sight recently, so the gaps in the foundation walls will undoubtedly by filling in soon. The building will now very quickly begin looking like a single project rather than a collection of smaller ones.

A black tar-like material is being added to all of the concrete pours to repel the moisture from the building. I know everyone misses the mold, but we likely won't be inviting it into our new building anytime soon.

The big news of the week is the arrival of the structural steel. Several big trailers and a couple of big cranes came into play. If you like jigsaw puzzles, you'll love what's about to happen.

There was a man walking through the front entrance earlier today over newly installed floor joists. In another six months it can be done without the hard hat and without watching that first step. Progress is great!!!
