There was a little more rain this week, which made the building site a bit muddy, but it didn’t slow down the workers too much. These photos were taken today (Saturday), so none of the construction crew was there. They normally work 6am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, and have the weekends to recuperate.
Work continued this week on forming the structural columns in the walls. Re-bar cages which reinforce the crown beams have been placed at the top of the walls. Next week the forms will be constructed which will shape the crown beams.
In addition, the swimming pool is taking shape. The re-bar of the pool floor and walls was bent and put in place.
We found this little guy on one of the railing posts around our pool at our rental house. It was finally determined that it is a Boa. He hides underneath a wooden plank on which we put bananas for the birds. Not sure if he is thinking about his next meal…
