Progress on the Friends' Shelter
We are continuing to make good progress.   The forms were stripped away today and the insulation was placed against the exterior foundation.  The short pillars are for the exterior columns at the covered entrance.   If you look closely you can also see the green sleeve where the plumbing will pass through the wall between the lobby and the hall on its way out to the pump tank which will be at the west end of the building.

The silt fence has been installed and the location for the transformer (northwest edge of the site) has been identified by Alliant.

Progress on the Friends' Shelter
 The foundation has been poured.   It will need to cure for several weeks before the backfill.
