Church-house: third day of precast going up...

Error message

As He was going out of the temple, one of His disciples said to Him, “Teacher, behold what wonderful stones and what wonderful buildings!” (Mark 13:1)

With its counterweights, the crane weighs 235,000 pounds. Since this particular panel it's putting in place has no windows, it weighs the full 38,800 pounds. When it's set down on the footer about one foot below ground level, it will rest on two piles of shims about the side of a small paperback. Those shims will allow the slurry to slither underneath the panel, filling in every square inch with a liquid cement much stronger than the footer or panel. The slurry won't be pumped under the panels to surround the shims for a couple days, yet.

Ain't it all beautiful? Our Architectural Prosthetics Committee has a tight budget. So hearing they wouldn't cost anything, they added the clouds.
