The plumbers are now beginning to make some good progress in getting the underground work in place so a new concrete slab can be poured in the center part of the building. Then walls can begin to go up!
The workers continue to find artifacts as they dig in dirt that has been 3 feet beneath a concrete slab for about 100 years. They have found broken china plates, broken crockery, and a few unbroken bottles, including one today that looks like a beer bottle. I plan to clean up these artifacts and display them in the apartments when they are finished.
