At the end of this week (Dec 9th, 2011), all of the footings and stem walls will have been poured along with the garage slabs in the two duplexes. We will start installation of the floor framing at the beginning of next week. The framing construction will start with Building No. 1 (the duplex closest to Prince Island Rd.) and the plumber will immediately follow the completion of the floor framing to install the rough plumbing. This entire process will roll through all four buildings. As soon as the plumbing rough-in is completed, we will begin the framing of the buildings.
We are hoping to install the roof trusses January 9th on Building No 1. The roofing will be installed immediately after sheeting is installed on the trusses. The buildings should, at this point, begin to look like houses.
While the weather will allow, we are installing the underground utilities. This construction requires dry weather, and so far, Mother Nature has been kind to us. It is imperative that all Tribal members maintain a positive attitude with respect to the weather so that we can get all four buildings dried-in as quickly as possible!
