We continue our report about construction on the stepped greenhouse below the guestrooms. 

 

Jenna and Sasha watch as David finishes the footing for one of the retaining walls at the ramp to the lowest level of the greenhouse.

Paolo van Erp ties rebar in the form for one of the 12 sets of concrete stairs on either side of the planter beds.

Ron Chandler often comes to help construction, taking time from his own work of landscaping [as well as metal work, taking care of the telephones, rattlesnake relocation …]. Here we are casting a set of stairs and footings for columns of the greenhouse membrane support structure.

 

More to come on 7/11/2012.
