Here is Mario, Trevor and Apromiano marking out the location of the new Runway.
Then began the process of removing a layer of gravel to make room for the form work.
As soon as the form work was in, it started to rain…
I’m sure you can all relate to why we’re ecstatic to get a hard surface to walk on and roll carts over. 🙂
Out of the rain, Ivan…
… and Raoul were building new tables for the new Landscape storage area, where we will be storing all the plants destined for the various projects.
Yesterday, the re-bar was put in.
William being a goofball, and Steven in conversation with Juan. Raoul stands at the ready with the level.
Elias and Eusebio guiding the Taidoseki – the tall vertical stone – into place.
Here it is being lowered into its new home!
Elias and Eusebio installing the large flagstone pavers.
This morning – with the promise of a dry day – it was time to pour the concrete.
Here is the crew from our subs, JC Construction, hard at work. Once the concrete begins to flow, it moves pretty quickly.
It looks pretty fun to be stomping around in the wet concrete!
Wouldn’t you agree?
The tool used for smoothing the concrete is called a bull float. We speculated that these guys probably could make beautiful frosted cakes. They certainly work wonders with concrete!
Meanwhile, Gina and I unloaded two shipments of plants. For now, they are housed under cover on the Patio for easier shopping. We have all the people featured in this post to thank for the fact that this is all starting to come together – and more… More on the pretty things we got in, in my next post. 🙂
