Here is an overview of the work completed thus far. Still a lot of concrete to go, but yet a lot of work completed.

Another view of the large bump (note: the other side is deeper)

Visitors to our work place are becoming a more common occurrence.

Today we woke up to sunny, but cold skies. This week there has been a major turn in temperatures. Work, though, has continued as normal.

The final order of steel arrived today.

Please stay off our construction site.

Another wonderfully warm sunny summer day. Here is Chooky with one eye looking over his shoulder. What is he watching out for, the boss perhaps?

Local Skater Magnus gave a helping hand today stripping forms, thanks!

I only posted one photo today. I am not sure if this was first, but I decided on a bonus post for an extra picture.

I don’t want to try and explain what possesses me to shot concrete, but I have been back at it again. Here is a picture of yours truly hard at work. It was taken a couple of days ago, but a photo from today would have looked remarkable similar.

Deep End Finished!

All week we’ve had warm and sunny skies. All week we’ve had concrete, too. Hopefully, it will be something of the same tomorrow. A little clouds would be nice for concreting, but please no rain.

I’ll have to take some more pictures of the deep-end so you can have a better look. Today was another successful day of concrete.

While we are at work, the neighborhood kids have been busy themselves building their own skatepark

I wondering how good they will be in a couple of years?

From all the comments I gather you guys like what you see!

We like what were doing, too.

Every piece of concrete is turning out just perfect.

Here’s a view of the flow course to come.

First piece of the bowl

I just post one photo today of the concrete construction. The first truck came with the concrete a little wet; the second truck was much better. We had a little bit of a challenging day, but nothing more than was to be expected.

Hard work and the final product turned out very nice indeed!
