Heat and Concrete

I haven’t posted an update for a while, but that doesn’t mean that things have been stalled. The store building is moving along nicely. We decided to install radiant heat, so that needed to be laid in the floor of the store before the final concrete was poured.

With the tube laid, a gauge shows us that the tubes are holding pressure. From here you keep your fingers crossed that the gauge doesn’t show a loss in pressure after the concrete goes down!

With the heat tubing in place, the concrete trucks came back to lay the floor.

And finally early last week the last of the concrete was poured with the creation of a sidewalk alongside the building to support the hand-trucks that deliver our products and pads in front of the doors. Over in the house, the rough electric is being run and the plumbing has been started, coinciding with work on the new septic system. Stay tuned for pictures of the store frame going up!
