MORE FOUNDATION WORK

The new addition is beginning to take shape with the formation of foundation walls and work on the north wall which that will become the opening between the new addition and the existing library.

Drains were installed to make sure that water does not get into the new building. This is a bit of a challenge for a building on a hill.

The existing front stairs were demolished and support was installed for their replacement.

The lower level slab was prepared for the installation of drainage, walls were demolished on the lower level and support beams were put in place on the upper level.

We are looking forward to turning from drains, demo and foundations to the rise of the new addition and the beginning of what the new Shute will be.
