S(h)take It Off

(Yes, that was the best and worst Taylor Swift pun we could come up with.)

This past weekend, a great majority of the members from Small Town Studio traveled to Eureka to, drum roll please, place the first stakes on our site! We dusted off the old Pythagorean Theorem from geometry class and got to work laying out the location of the eight columns.

It took us approximately two hours to place all the stakes exactly where we wanted them. We also took a survey of the topography on site, with much-appreciated help from the members of Rural Design Mob, to make sure we’re working with a (literally) level playing field.

We learned to use a transit to mark out the site topography.

More people went out to scout for supplies in the afternoon, but by the end of the day we left feeling prepared to welcome workers from Westar the next weekend. They’ll be setting the poles at 7:30 AM sharp on Friday, October 24, so stay tuned for updates. Let the construction phase begin!
