Left to right, Beau Flack, Julio Nicolas, Rod Hadrian Sr., Robert Mechielsen, Rod Hadrian Jr. standing in front of the first Tridipanel stood on this project. Date Nov. 26, 2009
Beau Flack and Rod Hadrian Jr. installing forms at the perimeter of roof #3.
The Tridipanel walls were extremely difficult to cut to the proper length and size, all Tridipanels were cut approximately one inch short of the ceiling Tridipanels, the 12" x 12" angles will take care of any void.
This photo shows the perimeter form and valley form, the Tridipanel roof panels will then be placed over the wall panels, all Tridipanels are now set level and plum, you can view the temporary 2"x 4" inch stud braces tied to some of the Tridipanel walls, they will be removed as the roof panels are fastened down.
This view is from the rear left of building #3 looking into a bathroom another lower roof will be installed where the ladder is now setting, the height of the wall panels will be the lower roof level.
Rear of building #3 or roof #3, you can see the slab for the roof #4 or bedroom #4, a lower roof will be installed here after the Portland cement is applied to the bottom of roof #3.
Rod Hadrian Sr. and Rod Jr. under roof #3, this part of the roof #3 cantilevers out approximately fifteen feet, the underside is all glass windows to pick up the spectacular view, all shoring will be removed after the concrete beams and columns are poured.
The side view of building #3 or roof #3, there are some window walls not up yet on this side of the building, I will show later.
