My Kingdom for a…. Footing!

We have Lift Off!

Last week the concrete foundation for the community building was poured.

The excavation crew is still removing excess dirt, but now also installing the sewer lines for the community building and cottages.  It turns out that the western half of the lot is mostly fill, and so easy to dig in.

The eastern half, however. is all old, undisturbed earth, and much harder and full of stone.  The crew has dulled several sets of teeth on the backhoe and removed a number of large boulders in the process.  They’ll add a lot to our landscaping!

Stay tuned to see what’s next in the building of Quixote Village!
