BRINGING IN FILL (ROUND TWO), continued

 

9/12/08, continued - While Henry Zinck was digging the hole for the power pole ...

... Kevin Knox delivered more fill to the site so Gene Knox

could bucket it into the interior of the building ...

... John Blais (on his day off) continued compacting ...
and Sam Stickney finished putting on the insulation.

By mid-day, a light rain was falling, but that didn't stop

Linda Blais from dropping by to lend a hand!

At 2:00 p.m., Dany Anctil arrived with a power pole loaded on his pulp truck.  Many thanks Dany for donating not only the pole, but your time to help us put it up!  Thanks also to John Blais for donating the guy wire kit for the pole!

Gene Knox helps John Blais (behind the pole) attach

the guy wire while Dany Anctil looks on.

Dany skillfully places the pole in the hole which Henry Zinck had prepared.
With the pole in position, Sam, John, and Bob pack fill into the hole.
9/13/08 - Saturday morning and Bob, Gene, John, and Louise are back at it for a half day of filling and compacting.
By noon, the fill is nearly at the required elevation of 2 inches below the insulation.
 
9/15/08 - Before the final layer of fill goes in, the pipe for the sewer needs to be placed.
John Blais digs and then he and Bob Stickney check the sewer pipe elevation.
 
9/16/08 - Unfortunately, the web site photographer wasn't available when the sewer pipe was actually put together, so we have no photos of plumber Steve Lizotte when he came to get that job done.  Thank you,  Steve, for volunteering your time and expertise!
 
9/18/08 - A morning of filling and compacting and the interior fill is up to the desired level!
View looking north (toward Route 2).
View looking south (toward the Androscoggin River)

Gene Knox now turns his attention

to grading around the outside

perimeter of the building site.

Gene (back to camera) and Bob (right) discuss with Kevin Knox (left) how many more loads they'll need to create the ramp up to the south door of the garage.
The dirt arrives and Gene uses his tractor to make the ramp take shape.
 
9/19/08 - The ramp gets completed by John Blais using the Stickney tractor.
 
The next step in construction will be to frame the walls.
