Block party! With the help of Antonio, our resident pressed block expert, our group handled over 72 tons of pressed block bricks today! That's right, 72 tons! The machine just kept pumping out the blocks, about 2700, to be exact. Our job was to move each block along the network of rollers and into the neatly stacked piles. The end goal is 5400 blocks to be used for the straight walls in Dora and Baxter's home. We're feeling the exertions of today's work tonight, though. I didn't know I had these kind of arm muscles!
We also made progress on our stem wall today! Lindsay and Ryan cranked out some beautiful form work, ready for the concrete to be poured as soon as possible. Go stem wall!
