Construction Thursday 7/20 September 29, 2006

Posted by jeanne in construction news, Urban Development.


Constructing grids of rebar in the square holes they’ve made in the vault. None of the holes is the same size, differing wildly. 8′ square, 12×20′. A crew of Mexican workers doing all the work. Gravel goes in the bottom of the grid. They’re making a cage spacers.

The sewer work out front – they realized we have a downstairs apartment, and came back to see if we had a sewer connection back there. They’re going to have to dig up our front yard, and they cautioned us to take bunches of pictures and call some PR guy if anything gets damaged. Fun guys, the engineers. Both mid-50s, trading Vietnam stories with each other while talking to us. The one got out after 2 months by being crazy. Back then, it was a sign of insanity to want to be in the Army. Ex hippies, both of them.
