5/23/18 – Bldg Pads and Grading
Last week the building pads were staked out, leveled and on Saturday the concrete forms were started. The excavating crew also did some additional wok around the main building to improve drainage and provide additional outdoor seating for meals.
Dan Hillstrom and Bob Keranen grade the north end of the main building.
On the east side, a gentle sloping sidewalk with railing will be built.
Dan Hillstrom works on improving drainage in the main courtyard area on the south side of the main building. The plan includes a concrete pad for additional outside seating at picnic tables.
After the pads were leveled at the site of the new buildings, the corners were set.
