Construction Update January 24, 2011

La Fortuna, Renton
Back fill has been completed across the entire back of the building.  We spread straw today in an attempt to help stabilize the ground. Steve will start bringing in structural fill for the garages and gravel for the driveway areas next week. Most of Unit 1 was insulated for back fill. 

Downspout drains were started today and are about 50% complete. Plumbing waste lines are in Units 2 & 3 and 90% complete in Unit 1. We are hoping to have the plumbing underground installed and inspected by the end of next week. As soon as the plumbing can be back filled we will start the electrical conduits. Once we have an electrical permit, the conduit installed, and our inspections we can finish back filling the garages and get ready for the slabs to be poured.

Site work performed this week was quite varied and included erosion control tasks, back filling the office trailer's power and telephone trench, removal of invasive plants from the wet lands, completion of the recycling dumpster, and the start of a shed for the volunteer tool box and safety glasses.

Work next week will include the all staff build, spreading top soil and planting native plants in the wet lands, plumbing underground, downspout drains, foundation insulation, some specialized mud sills around the entryways, site work, and electrical conduits.

The focus of this shortened week was on building 4. We did manage to get a few more windows in on building 3.

Building 4: Hardie plank siding in the back of the building is about 95% complete.  Started caulking siding and continued exterior spackle.  Hardie plank siding on the north and south ends are both at about 40% complete.
Next week siding will continue on building 4, paint prep work and if the weather cooperates some painting. Siding will also begin on the roof of building 4. We should be close to removing the scaffolding on the back of building 4 and moving it to building 3.
