The next phase of the new store construction happened this week as the frost walls were formed and poured. The back of the store goes into the hillside a little bit, making the back wall all concrete.
Setting the forms took a little longer than planned, so concrete trucks were backing up in the driveway before the pouring began – never a good thing, but the crew from Porter’s Excavating & Concrete worked hard to get it all done. Four concrete trucks later and with the daylight fading, they ended up finishing under the lights. A long day for them all.
Also last week Kaps Krew Electric was in to install the upgraded electric service that will support the store, daycare, and the care-taker’s apartment upstairs. The old electric junction box had been precariously pulling away from the house, so it’s great to have a shiny new box with three service lines – it looks so professional!
