This post will be shorter than most. We had an unveiling on a personal building project this week. Josiah Stephen was born early Monday morning (2:44 am), so between that and Thanksgiving, I’m pretty much missing all week. Here’s the result of our 9-m0nth construction project:
What with the bad weather this week, there hasn’t been as much activity. But that’s not to say that there’s been no progress. On the site work side, the water lines have continued to come up Honeysuckle Ln:
And yesterday morning when I stopped by I saw the meter pit on a trailer, waiting to be installed. It’s aptly-named; the water main enters one end, passes through a meter and exits into the 2 lines we need: an 8″ for fire and a 4″ for domestic supply:
Also along Honeysuckle, they have been installing some screening. Here are the trees waiting to be planted:
And here is some of the screening on a rainy, dreary Tuesday morning:
The electricians also came and installed the transformer vault. It holds the transformer, which converts the high-power electrical lines into the power that our building needs:
They’ll soon start to install the main supply lines from the road. They also ran some underground conduit for the chiller (part of our HVAC system):
And the curbing guys have come back to pour the smaller sections that the machine couldn’t reach. Here you can see a section that’s been formed and is ready to pour. You can also notice the gray conduit that’s been run for the site lighting:
They’ve also begun to backfill behind the curbing:
And the waterproofing has been completed on the main poured wall:
That’s all for this week. I know that they’ve also laid more block on the elevator and done a few other odds and ends; but I’ve missed a lot the last few days. Next week’s update will also be light because of Thanksgiving and the Unofficial Holiday of Pennsylvania’s Fall–Deer Hunting. Most of the contractors will be out early next week. But as I mentioned before, the month of December should see some exciting developments.
Until next week.
