Project progress - Issue 3

It's been a while since I gave an update on my mega project. The most exciting thing since my last post, I think, is the geothermal well progress. Check out these trenches! 

That's a lot of digging! The wells were drilled about a month ago. Now all of the horizontal connections through the lot and into the building are happening. Sometimes it's just crazy to me to think about the these pipes coming from the ground providing the source for major mechanical systems in the building. I'm not sure I even understand it completely. I do know though, it looks like a muddy mess!

What else is happening? The roof. Even though weather has been against us, we are moving along at a decent pace. And drywall has started on the third floor so it really is starting to look like walls. Hopefully on my next update I will have some interior shots. And in the next couple of weeks, we will bring a couple mega huge beams into the basement. Still working out logistics on that one but no matter, I'm sure there will be interesting photos.
