They are riding tailboard and not wearing seatbelts either!!
Congrats on the new house. Can't wait to see the finished product
Forming up for the slab, should be pouring concrete in a couple of weeks...
great to hear!
Good work chief! I might have to give you a shout and check it out when I head to the track this fall/winter
Well, I know I haven't posted any updates on the status of our station project for quite awhile. There's a very good reason for that, which is, there had not been any progress. The last photos I posted with just the concrete forms in place was about as far as we got. Shortly after those pics were taken (and before the concrete was poured), the project sort of imploded and ground to a screeching halt.
We ran into some problems with the contractor, the details of which I won't discuss here because there is possible (probable) litigation pending. The job site has been growing up in weeds since June while we disentagled ourselves from the original contract and advertised for a new bidder. Many lessons learned and months later, we have a new contractor and resumed construction this week.
Beginning at 0400 this morning, concrete has finally been poured at the site, including the main building slab, parking lot, and one of the driveways. The front apron will be poured at a later date. The new contractor is wasting no time and the project has taken off at an amazing pace. I hope it keeps up :)
Don't you just love people you put trust in and than they let you down
Good to hear that the project is moving forward
A critical stage!
Make sure that concrete is of good quality! Every floor treatment you plan on using will be affected.
We had an addition done and the concrete was no good. We applied a floor treatment to it and it popped and bubbled for years due to the hydrostatic pressure.
I hope everything continues to get better for you guys and I look forward to seeing more pictures of your new building.
Looking good Chief!
More progress...roof and sheet metal are all in place, beginning to frame up the front and interior walls....The rear-facing sides (C & D, since you guys speak the language :) ) will be metal siding, the road-facing sides (A & B) will be brick. In our case I'm calling the side with the engine bay doors side "B", since the "address" side will be the Highway 1 side where you see the windows and double door framed in these pics.

Startin to look like a HOUSE!
In today's modern world, the Street address would be 6900 Glenn Dale Rd. Do a Google map thing on that address, then switch to "Satallite View" The Building shown is what was our 3rd Station, 6910 Glenn Dale Rd, and the earlier Station stood where the parking lot is shown now....... :)
Looking good chief!! What is the scheduled completion date?
Downstairs meeting and training room....
Front wall, second floor framing....
Upstairs room, looking toward locker rooms....
For the time being, the upstairs will be left as one huge room (except for the two locker rooms you see framed up toward the back there). At some time in the future we're planning to section this area off into dorm rooms, a gym, and a sort of general hanging-out area, but we really don't know exactly how we want to lay that out yet so we're leaving it as an open floor plan for now.
