Cami is on the rock!

Charlotte, her mom Patsy and sweet Cameron arrived on Monday!  Lori and I were so excited to meet this beautiful little one, and she is as precious in person as she is in the photos.

Monday was a good day.  A good day, indeed. We're almost caught up on the back log as we finally poured the tower villa and the slab for the upper 1BR villa.

One more story left.[/caption] [gallery ids="3433,3442" type="rectangular"] After only a few days, we were able to reclaim all of the forms from the cistern pour from last week.  The crew has been removing the interior snap-ties and sealing the holes.  A nice coat of sealant and this massive cistern will be ready to hold some serious water.  Next step on this one, the floor slab.

[gallery ids="3432,3431" type="rectangular"] The crew has also been working on getting the pool ready for its next pour.  The outer wall of the equipment room is nearing completion.  The top of the semi-circle structure is actually the bottom of the pool.

That's all for this week!  Have a great week everyone!
