It's exciting times, only downfall is losing parts of the amazing view

If you're in PA - West I'll wave from Infinity!
Actually I'm in P.A. east., so I guess waving is out.

At night, I see one car at the PB and one car at KGH site. I believe he is the security guide. The lonely men stay at the site over night, protecting the developer equipment and also protect your investment or future home. It is pretty cold these days. I don't see any heated shelter at the site yet. Sometime he sit outside the car, some time he walked around the site. Salute to both of them.

Not sure what's happening here They haven't removed any dirt from the site for awhile, but they're drilling a lot of horizontal holes into the side of the hill next to the kiss and ride.

Most likely they are just putting anchors in before digging down further.

They will finish this up pretty quick in my opinion as they are already a couple stories down on the north end.

That's to keep the wall of the hole from collapsing. They'll put long threaded rods in, spray the side of the wall with concrete, and then bolt a large plate onto the sprayed concrete.

The bolt squishes the concrete, which then gives the wall of the hole more strength than it'd normally have.

I was in construction too, but it was of large boats. We called what stopped them from falling over when they were on land (ashore ) shoring as well.

Aw, man! I'd love to build boats! I'm utterly fascinated with boats and how much stuff can be crammed into something that looks small from the outside. Of course, I'll never afford one to find out of myself...

The saying is, "Many people can afford to buy a boat but few can afford to keep one". I have been fortunate enough to own a few...For a little while.

Based off of this image I would've loved to see two towers! Alas, one tower with a larger podium will do just fine.

They're working here, but compared to the Hub, they're taking it pretty slow.

Maybe one of the excavator operators from Hub could drive over and lend a hand lol. It's 2 vs 4 so it's a unfair advantage. Then again the Hub site is more than double the size.
