                                   Building Our House in the Caribbean

                                                                           Step 38 - Constructing the Courtyard Patio
                                                              Courtyard read for pour     
                                     Chip surveyed the courtyard for grade, then fill had to be removed, and compacted. 
                                                Next steel was installed and Art put in the plumbing for the drain.

                   Since the courtyard was constrained by walls on most of its sides, we poured it in three sections.
                        Before we poured the middle section, Clada and Edward poured a retaining wall.

        This gave the concrete time to start setting up for floating before the middle section was poured.  Gus has long arms!
