A major milestone was achieved on Monday when our cement floor was poured. This puts us on pace to start making ice in the early weeks of January.
The first crews arrived on site at 4 a.m. and the pour began around 6:30.
A minor hic-up at the start when a truck got stuck...
but it was pulled free soon enough.
This machine is used to vibrate the cement so it fills in through all the layers of mesh, pipes, and rebar.
A total of 15 trucks delivered cement, with two at a time emptying into the big pump.
The pour is complete, now the finishing begins.
These hovercrafts were awesome!
Busy smoothing and flattening the cement.
