So much to do in so little time–there are so many moving parts in a build the size of the two Memory Care homes. This week focused on the hundreds of feet of retaining walls that will hold the “Superpad” to keep to houses on one level; no steps no hills, just wondering paths, patios with breath taking views and underground “ponds” to keep run off water clean before it enters our waterways…and to think all these marvels depend on the infrastructure of retaining walls to make them work! Our own Noah resident, John, got to watch some of the concrete pouring this morning for these very walls, and even got to keep his hard hat and vest!
As I watch (and learn) from so many construction experts who have lent their skills to Noah Homes, I have become aware of all that must go on underground to make the beauty of the finished product function for many years to come. I am so excited today to show you “above ground” progress! We have the first major pour of wall footings for the wall that will retain the pad that will hold both houses. With that much weight the preparation for this wall has been intense and thorough. Along with engineering, the design of the wall is equally as important as it will be a very prominent focal point when the job is complete. I want to extend my thanks to JT Barr of Schmidt Design for taking time to be sure the color, the finish and the treatment of the edges will lend to the beauty of our finished homes.
