The calm before the storm...

Things are gearing up, with aggregate, sand and cement due in next week.  The yard at St. John Concrete is almost ready, but there are a lot of final touches to complete before we start pouring concrete like crazy.  We also got some nice coverage this week in St. John Tradewinds News. We have strategically stacked 4, 20' containers which will contain our batch office, with chemical and fiber storage along with our chemical house on the bottom left.  Our second mixer also arrived.

Focus last week was on the Upper 1BR Villa, and the crew has begun creating the main floor slab and covered porch forms.  We'll have to pour the stem walls in the foreground before we can complete this slab form, but Sheraz and team can still form beams and tie some steel before we're totally blocked out waiting for concrete. fullsizerender_5 It was nice to stand on the porch of the Upper 1BR  and experience for the very first time the views this villa will enjoy.
