The ceilings are mostly in, and the final stages of the trades are happening. You will see that they have put the toilets in, and the partitions are going in as well.
The driveway and walkways are mostly done!
Drumroll Please, the long awaited, time lapse film of the installation of our concrete slab for ice.
It doesn’t seem like much, but these are important features
We now have fully functioning stairs and the wheelchair lift installed and operational.
These came out a little better than the video did. Enjoy. We are getting there. Keep tuned to this channel for the time lapse photography of the installation of the slab, if I can ever get the GoPro people to get it to work!
Would you like a tour of the inside warm room?
OK, so full disclosure, there is not good lighting, and no earth shattering news to share, just steady progress and a couple of key developments. Enjoy the video.
This video is very cool.
This is a video of the compression roller that is compacting the soil in preparation for the gravel road to start installation tomorrow. The video does not describe the sensation that was felt. This roller has a vibration aspect to it, that you can feel in the ground when you stand 100 feet or more away from it. When I was this close, it was causing my teeth to rattle.
Tommorow they pour more sidewalks and start the gravel road
OK, so here are pictures of where they poured the main sidewalk that goes across the road.
And the pictures below show where they are ready to pour the sidewalk that goes out to the street. (I know, how many curlers are going to be walking to the facility, right? But it was part of what code required that we install. Stupid if you ask me, but, guess what, they did not ask)
The exterior is coming along, but rain has made it exceptionally difficult.
Here is the warm area, showing how it is transforming.
So only 28 days to wait, until we can fire up the chillers!
If you look at my other blog posts, you see the pictures and videos of the concrete pad that has all the refrigeration in it.
This photo shows the area that is a chilled slab for the scraper, to keep the blade the same temperature as the ice.
Here you see it poured, covered with Visqueen, curing. After 7 days, they do a break test to determine how it is curing. After that we should be able to put single man scissor lifts out on the concrete.Once we hit this point, then we can start wiring and running lights in the ice area.
In the next post I will show you the progress we have made with the interior warm space.
