September 12, 2019 – Solar panel installation has started, more site work, more electrical work

Inside and outside panoramas to start.  Even though the windows and skylights are on the north side of the room, great light enters the open office area.

Behind the building, the solar panel installers are placing mounts for the panels.

Electrical and site work dominated the day today.

September 11, 2019 – More electrical work, more taping, and discussing the plaza fill

If you thought our “large house” was just like residential construction, check out the exterior power box!  That thing is huge!

Interior taping continues.  A new trench was excavated to run power to the sign we will have near Beavercreek Road.  And the owner-architect-contractor team discussed the problem with the plaza fill material.

September 10, 2019 – Septic tank installation completed, more taping, electrical work

First are four panoramic views highlighting work inside the building, the completed septic system, and boulders behind the facility.

Next is a gallery of exterior and interior photos.  Rock was placed at the southeast entrance in preparation for pouring concrete curbing.  Taping inside the building is moving along, as is the electrical work.  Recent rainfall revealed a drainage problem in the rear plaza.

September 9, 2019 – Septic tank installation begins, more taping

We estimate that it will take only two days to install the septic system!

September 6, 2019 – Focus is on the plaza today

Placing the gold-colored crushed granite started today in the outdoor plaza behind the building.  The darkest material is damp and loose while the lightest material has been compacted and has started to dry.  When this work is complete, the entire plaza surface will be smooth, compacted crushed granite.  After compaction, and with some moisture and use, this material should form a very firm, durable surface.

One of the things we are most excited about is that the plaza will be finished at the same elevation as the walkways.  That means that when we open the two sets of double doors in the conference center room (in the photo below, they are closed off with boards), the plaza can become part of meetings and events.  We can extend displays and events outdoors when the weather cooperates!

Here’s an animation of shooting the crushed granite from the truck onto the plaza:


September 5, 2019 – Sheetrock complete, taping underway, curb being excavated

Let’s start September with a big panoramic image of the front of the building on a lovely blue sky September day.  You can see that the roof is done.  More work on the Tyvek exterior wall wrap and siding has been done.  A new trench has appeared and that is where the footing for the concrete curbing will go.

Exterior photos

Excavation of the curb footing, electricians at work, insulation and scrim under the rear walkway covers, and two choices for covering the concrete pilasters at the main entrance and around the rear plaza.

Interior photos

The light-colored sheetrock really highlights how much natural light comes into the spaces.  Sheetrock installation is done.  Taping is almost done in the office area and will progress through the lobby and bathrooms and then into the conference center room.
