Nov 23 - Soon to have its trenches dug for its plumbing...for cabin 3 it's the calm before the storm.

Nov 23 - Cabin 6 gets its plumbing started.
Nov 24 - Getting set up for pouring 3 cabins today!
Nov 24 - Just waiting for the mixer to send it to the buggy to take it to the pour.
Nov 24 - Waiting for the very first pour of concrete...very exciting!
Nov 24 - The very first pour was for cabins 7 & 8.
Nov 24 - Unlike the other "quicksand" you have to move quickly with this stuff.
Nov 24 - Rubber boots are required for this job. It wouldn't take long to get stuck in the concrete it sets so quickly.
Nov 24 - The laser level that is used to make sure the concrete is the same thickness all the way around the slab.
Nov 24 - On your mark, get set....POUR!!
Nov 24 - Buggying the concrete for cabins 7 & 8. This particular pour actually splattered onto the cameraman's clothes.
Nov 24 - backfilling Cabin 3 after the plumbing was finished. It happened quickly in order to get it ready for the concrete.
Nov 24 - looks more like a pool than a pour. If you look closely you can see the reflection of the doors in the curing concrete.
Nov 24 - mixing, pouring, spreading and smoothing all takes place at the same time.
Nov 24 - cabins A & B were poured on the first day along with 4, 5, 7, and 8.
Nov 25 - Cabin 3 prepped for its pour.
Nov 25 - Next steps for Cabins 7 & 8.
Nov 25 - from right to left Bob, Bret, and Rick. These 3 were the first on site and are the guys responsible for, well, pretty much everything.
Nov 25 - while the concrete was being poured at other cabins, the plumbers were putting the finishing touches at cabin 6 so it could be poured.
Nov 25 - cabin 3 has its slab poured. All the cabins have their slabs poured. They did all the pouring in 2 days.
Nov 25 - cabins 1 & 2 getting the next steps started after the slab was poured. Getting ready for the walls.
Nov 25 - Do you know what this is? It's drying concrete! Never thought we'd get so excited over drying concrete, but it's a big step in the project to get all the cabin slabs poured.
Nov 25 - cabins 4 & 5 slab getting the finishing touches.
Nov 25- The concrete slabs have to be smooth and you have to be a little bit of an artist to make that happen. You also need the right tools, including the knee pads that allow you to "float" across the concrete.
Nov 25 - cabin 7 & 8 concrete dried and we see the beginning of the next step...
Nov 25 - putting the finishing touches on the Cabin 6 slab.
Nov 25 - the concrete was cast and so was this shadow!
