These doors have their frames. The bracing comes down when the concrete is cured. These are the doors to the laundry and the pantry. The door to the outside enters a corridor which goes to the front balcony on the second floor. Yes, it has a view, too.
I know y'all think I am obsessed with the septic tank. I guess I am, for two reasons. The most important is we can't move in until we have water, electricity, and sewage. The second is, I have never seen a home-made septic tank.
In the top picture, in the lower center, you can see two large black spots. These are rocks, big rocks. These rocks are so big there was never a question of digging them out. Marvelous Marvin to the rescue! Marvin and his trusty sledge hammer got into the pit and banged away on those rocks until they were even with the wall.
The center shows the masonry work. Every wall is plumb and every block is in its place; and much of the time the mason was balanced on the scaffolding or on the ladder.
The bottom picture shows the framing for the top, which will be poured in place. I don't have a clue how you would pump it out if you needed to get to the bottom of things. ;-D
We are making progress poco-a-poco, but we are making progress. We couldn't do it without José and Marvin, and we surely could not do it without faith.
We are blessed.
