Subfloors and steel and lots more . . .

The construction crews have been hard at work assembling our library building. I knew that it was too early to add the roof, so I had to ask what all of the corrugated sheet metal was for.
As it has been explained to me, this is used as subflooring and concrete will be poured over the top to create the floor.

Here you can see the erected structural steel along the middle of the building. Judging by the size of the steel beams, the architects must understand quite well how heavy our loaded bookshelves can be.

They have also added the sub-flooring to the basement area. Beyond this, the beginnings of the reading room foundation is visible. In a matter of months, you could be relaxing outdoors on our reading area enjoying the view and a good story.

There is much more steel waiting and ready to find its proper place in our new building.

By the way, our block layers have been working hard to fill in the gaps in our walls. If we could get an aerial view now, we could finally have a good representation of our building's dimensions.
Stay tuned next week for more pictures . . .Same Book Time . . .Same Book Channel.
