Going vertical! We've gone from a dirt pad to steel beams rising in 36 hours!
Over the past couple weeks the grading of the building pad was completed, initial plumbing was laid, and the footing trenches were dug. We were delayed a week or two by rainy weather, but on Tuesday the foundation was poured and on Wednesday the support beams started going up.
Cement trucks arrived early on Tuesday, September 16.
This machine was used to pour the cement in the footing trenches that surround the building.
By the end of the day we had a lounge floor and a foundation.
This is a gap in the footings where the header pipes will enter the building, but gives you a good look at the inside of the foundation.
By Wednesday they started putting up the support beams.
Bathroom and lounge plumbing encased in concrete.
Rebar covered in strips of cement connect the support beams on opposite sides of the building.
The floor will be level as you move from the lounge to the ice shed. Then you will step down onto the playing service. You can see the start of the wheelchair ramp in the center.

We appreciate your continued support!
