the forms have been stripped

September 4th, 2008

so finally all the forms have been stripped from the shop walls and we’re starting to layout the electrical and plumbing that will traverse underneath the concrete slab within the shop. we still need to break off all of the snap ties:

which will require us finding a bar that is just bigger than the head of the snap tie to fit over it and bend them back and forth and then rotate them till they break off – it takes about 10-15 seconds per snap tie and there are around 1600 of them… so hopefully only around 4.5-5 hours of work.

under the stars

September 4th, 2008

upon recommendation/suggestion i spent the night in the shop, sans roof, under the stars – the big locust(?) trees in the neighbor’s yard behind swayed and moved their thousand fingered-leaves in the whispering air as i fell into a lull and sleep consumed me.
