Onward and Upward

When I headed over to the lot today, the sparks were flying!
They were hard at work adding the rebar grids and verticals for the retaining walls.  At least they had cooler weather for it this week.

By the end of the day, they had really come a long way.  It looked like a rebar jungle out there.
Some of their configurations were very pretty and geometrical. 
I remember doing someting like this with nails and string in a Math class along the way.

I kind of liked the way the curve in the wall looked with all the rebar grids and orange bedecked vertical supports.
Now  they are all done with the footer prep for the retaining walls.  Tomorrow we will have an inspection and if all is well, we'll proceed onward and ... (you guessed it!) ... upward with *more* rebar and then the forms for the walls.
