building a new house, October 20

The outline of the former barbershop can be seen along the wall of the merchant's fireproof storehouse (kura). Now about 3 weeks since workmen began the process of leveling the ground, laying out foundation lines with string, then building the outlines to pour the cement foundation over reinforcing steel rods. They located the water supply, gas supply, sewerage and drain lines, as well as spaces for electrical conduits to run. With the cement poured, hard, and cured, now the forms have been removed to reveal the finished base to bolt the sill plate of the house.
