Ring Around the Classroom

Walt and his handy helpers finished blocking up the walls for the new classrooms at the International Bible Church.  Below you can see them setting up the forms for the ring beam and the corner posts.  What you can't see is the steel re-bar inside the forms which helps tie all the walls together into a solid structure.
The poured the beams on Thursday as I recall.  After our monthly Saturday morning mens meeting today, we helped collect all the small pieces of wood and loose nails lying around, so that no one will injure themself on Sunday.
In the above photo, some of the plywood forms have been removed and you can see the concrete beams connecting the various block sections.  Most structures here on Bonaire are constructed in this manner.
