Time to Build Foundation Forms

The next construction step is to build forms in which reinforcing steel will be placed, followed by pouring of concrete.  All of this will require 3-4 weeks to complete.  Please pray it does not rain in that time period.

Four men build the forms.  One cuts lumber to size, two install the cut pieces, and the foreman, who is kneeling over the plans in the center of the picture.  He oversees, helps, and makes sure everything is done "perfectly".  This is exacting work and must be done perfectly, because upon the foundation will rest the entire building.
