First Day of Fall




The concrete footings for the new brick front and rear walls were poured today.  Even Elemental Building’s Chief Operating Officer got in the mix!  Of course, the mix included flyash/slag replacement (see info on the ‘Greenest Garage in Chicago’ page for more information on the benefits of flyash concrete).  Unfortunately, though we ordered 50% flyash, we only got 35%.  Why?  Because most builders (even when they are trying to be green) order 35%, so our 50% order got lost in the shuffle.  Just goes to show you how much diligence it takes to overcome the status quo.

    The pictures speak for themselves — in the calm before the storm you can see you are actually calm both before and after the storm. Sorry my friend, from this point forward, you can’t go back.
