Construction Underway

Construction of Sampsa's home in Clyde is now underway with foundations being formed and poured. The salvaged tilt-slab panel that our Engineer, Paula, found was stood last week. It's great to have saved a great hunk of concrete from heading to the landfill. This panel is being used as a retaining wall on the lower level.

The Autoflow septic system, has been delivered to the site and will be installed soon. It's great to have the project in underway! Pictures will soon follow.
