DAY 21

Today we continued laying the floor up to the kitchen. We then reinforced 4 beams (see pictures), by first fastening two 2X8 pieces of wood on each beam (all wood is resting upon solid rock foundation). Step 2 pour concrete. Step 3 - bolting everything together.

Sylvain took some time to cut all the old wires. It was insane, how many wires, and junction boxes we found hidden in the walls and beams. Remember the snake pit in Indiana Jones Raiders of the lost Ark? Pretty much same scenario!
