Floor Pour at Cody's

Today, I strained to see the concrete pour for the first floor where Cody used to live. The people have been all abuzz. Very unusual construction for a house. The first floor is being built like a parking lot with long cables which will be pulled tight inside the concrete. You can see the bringt pink ends of those cables.
Alice talked with one of the concrete guys. Yes, he said, it's pretty unusual. A bit over-engineered. But, the new house will be owned by an engineer who wants this type of construction. I suppose it means they won't need big supporting walls in their new basement.
Alice noticed the big boom for getting the concrete to the right place. It has painted on it crossed USA and Canadian flags. Did they come from Canada? Who knows!
