August 12th Post

 

 

Hello Friends.  As we told you last week, we hoped for a lot of activity this week and that is just what we got!

Monday August 10th

Bright and early (before 7 am) the steel from Vulcraft arrived and the crew started unloading.

Within minutes the first roof joist was flying high and being set on the support beams!

By just about lunchtime, most of the steel was in place and the crew was welding the cross bracing.

The steel crew continues welding cross bracing and securing the joists to the steel support columns and beams.  By five that afternoon, all of the bracing had been welded in place and they had already started installing the roof decking!

While the crew was welding in the kitchen area, there was another team of welders hard at work in front of the building finishing the  new steel trellis that will support the wisteria vine.

The hardworking steel erection crew finished the roof by about 1pm!  We are sooo excited!  LITTLE MEXICO has a roof again!  It’s starting to look like a building again.  The week isn’t even half over!

While the roof was going on the carpenters were also hard at work in the front half of the building.  They have finished framing the bathrooms and have actually started re-installing paneling to the waiting room walls!  We were told that the electricians will start pulling wire tomorrow in the front half of the building!
