Casting the concrete footings

The footings are almost done! Due to the loose sand used for the filling as well as using mainly man power instead of machinery, it has taken a lot of time to finish the underground parts of the building. Even though it is nowadays raining almost every afternoon, we could prevent the footing pits turning into rainwater ponds by filling them soon after digging with riprap (large stones). Stones would be compacted and lay concrete casted on top to make the base for the actual footing. Hopefully things will start proceeding faster now that the toughest part is done!
