Dennis and his crew from Jim Giancola Concrete continued their work laying out the rebar (that's Dennis on the left in the first picture). Because there's limited access to the site, they have to hand carry all of the rebar down into the basement. They're using ASTM A615 grade 60 rebar. The pile of fishbone rebar delivered in the street, weighed eight tons!

Today they completed much of the bottom layer. When they're done with that layer, they'll construct another layer right above it. He expects we'll be pouring the concrete next Tuesday.

In case you're wondering what's inside the Baker Tank, the last picture shows you what it looks like. I sure wouldn't want to fall in there!
