Despite a fresh layer of snow, the first floor walls have been poured. Backfilling of the foundation and site grading is being done in preparation of ground floor.  The plumbing contractor is installing the sewer lines today.
Backfilling of foundation is complete.  Sewer lines are in.  Workers were on-site yesterday preparing box forms for when the concrete flooring is installed. Unfortunately weather is not cooperating so we are on-hold for the time being. 
We are having a traditional North Country winter this year which means that our building project is on-hold but will resume once the weather improves. Hopefully the end of March or the beginning of April will see some improvement.
Between 18-24” of new snow fell on Tuesday.  No new progress to report. Still waiting for Spring.
