    I noticed after class the other day that all the scaffolding around it had been taken down. If they're not done, they're probably pretty close to it.

    The electronic chimes in the bell tower have been working for about a year. The folks in the Computing Center reprogrammed it to play the Fight Song on Fridays during football season. Have to talk with them to see if they'll do it again this spring for Wear Red days during baseball season.

    The last part of Denbo was demolished today. February 13, 2011

    Denbo-down

    The concrete finishers completed yesterdays placement after dark. Finished concrete slab is lower left. They are continuing to place foundation rebar in the middle section. Looks like they may be placing concrete about Wednesday. The plumbers are trying to stay ahead in the third section.

    Those guys are out of control. I love it.

    I say after they finish in July/August, I say we tell them to pack up and relocate to the Tigue and tell them to do whatever they can. They'll have the whole stadium renovated and upgraded by the end of September at the rate they're moving on the dorms.

    I am for going to the Tigue next as well... Coach Robe and the boys could use a meanigful facility upgrade.. The top tier kids want to play in a baseball program that provides very good facilities! New/upgraded facilities could mean a consistent top 20 program!

    I think this contractor could demolish what has been erected at Lamson Park and reconstruct to completion before the present contractor is finished.

    My wife who is a professional photographer loved this photo. Just be forewarned that you may receive a FB friend request by someone named Luciana. She is Brazilian, but an American citizen now. But, just for fun, tell her you don't accept illegal aliens as friends.

    Long story...

    Really good photo, BTW, as well as the others you posted.

    Thanks! It's always nice to get a compliment from an unbiased stranger.

    If I could find a job, I'd start saving up to buy a good Nikon or Cannon DSLR camera, so that I could really get into it. I'd like to do photography as a side job or side hobby, but I gotta have money to make money. I've never taken a photography class or anything, it's something I wished I could have taken at UL, but I just don't have time now. I just kinda experiment and figure things out on my own haha.

    I won't even go into how expensive it was to get her started, but let's just say that we don't eat out nearly as much, at least until we can pay this stuff off. A Nikon D60 and D700, including all the lenses, soft boxes, backdrops, lighting, etc!!

    Whatever happened to knitting?? It used to be a reputable skill....

    Once they finish framing and close in, progress won't be quite as apparent. There will be lots of rough in and then finish work to be done inside. They will still be busting butt I'm sure.

    Juneau Construction is a large corporation from the Atlanta area and they just flat out get it done. Lemoine is their local guy in a joint venture. The owner of Juneau Construction is from Cottonport and is an LSU grad.

    I'm thinking they are using this job as an example to create an impact in Louisiana.

    So I was taking some pictures of the construction/campus yesterday and came across this:

    DSC_0657

    If you can't tell, the Louisiana flag and the US flag were flying side by side, on the same mounts. Somebody should know better than to do that.

    Overview of work on February 19, 2011. Clock wise from left. CMU stair well construction, more debris removal form Bancroft/Denbo demolition, Preparation for final section of concrete placement, initial framing of Taft Street dorm.

    Taft-street-dorm

    CMU stairwell - Structure to be used as area of refuge and shear walls

    stairwell-shearwalls

    Preparation for final concrete placement on Taft Street dorm

    If you travel on I-10 near the Scott exit look at the north west corner and you will see a large pile of stone at the "Recycled Rock" yard. This is where the concrete debris is being taken to be crushed. The pile will get bigger over the next few weeks.
