October Workshopper Phil lassos the 40′ long, #10 rebar to help guide it into place.


Assembling the beam is a challenge for the Construction Crew considering the large size of the rebar (reinforcement).

The crew also poured a 2′ x 8′ pilaster to support the beam than runs midspan of the second floor slab.


For the small pour, the group hand mixed the concrete and bucketed it up to the formwork.

Ray and Anthony vibrate the concrete to remove air pockets.
