Work day 17 and the prep work is complete meaning the I-beams are finally going in the ground. Eight beams were placed today, although only 6 were filled with concrete (due to a slight miscalculation). The last two will be filled tomorrow along with ten new beams. Overall, the process is pretty interesting to watch: Drill eight holes, drop eight beams in, fill eight holes half way with concrete, fill eight holes the rest of the way with slurry.

The electric company’s work crew also came out today and connected our temporary power pole. It will be nice to no longer need a generator…
