Jul 29/30 – The forms are going up. There are many pieces to this puzzle and Gio assembles it alone. As well as all the many pieces of oil soaked plywood that make up the walls of the forms, and lots of bracing, there is rebar inside the forms and hundreds of small metal bars that connect the two sides of the form walls.
Aug 5 – The forms have all been stripped away and the walls have cured for a couple of days. Then the tar gets applied.
