CONSTRUCTION MARCHES ON

Construction made great progress this past month. Concrete floor slabs were removed and recycled and so that a drainage system could be installed. The north wall – which will be partially removed to provide entry between the addition and the library, was prepared for it’s new role with a large beam. Out front, concrete retaining wall planters were poured in place. What will April bring? Stay tuned.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive
    the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this
    is wonderful blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
