Progress, progress, progress! Lendon of Huntsville is coming along.

We can see some really cool progress here now!  We're not quite to the point that we see structures going up but we certainly can see the shape of the community falling into place.  It looks like they have completed the shaping of the ground on the north side and have started dropping in a gravel foundation which you can see in the pictures.  We did get a bit of rain yesterday and there's a good chance we'll have rain through Monday but we expect to see the work continue on Tuesday.  This is very exciting to watch the progress!  Sometimes it looks like it's just a bunch of dirt being pushed around until you see the shape coming together. It's like watching a sculpture create a masterpiece, the clay doesn't look like much at first but as each stage of the process continues the art begins to shine.
Work continues on the south west end of the community

We can see the North end almost ready

Trucks, dirt and dust!

Building up the corners

Up and around

This is a slow process but much needed

The Results

These were taken between the spells of rain.  Of course there are some puddles but you can see how nice of a job they did flattening out this end.  Also notice the gravel that they started to lay.  Does anyone want to guess what day we'll see the first structures foundation poured?

A little closer to the platform

Here's the gravel that has been started.  This is great to see the nice work they are doing.
