Dec-25-2012_Christmas Day



Last 2012 Srila Prabhupada Legacy Vault Update. 






Camp Prabhupada Village: The Sun is again shining, lifting our spirits and the Roof! With the insulated reinforced concrete walls up and poured its time for the roof.





Concrete hose is positioned to pour the walls.



A dedicated concrete pump is called on the job
pumping two full concrete trucks loads into the walls.



The 8 feet high walls are poured in two stages. 



It has become a dance of machine and man in
“Raising the Roof”. With little space to spare this
unique part of the vault encloses the space using
a MET-WOOD permanent steel frame to connect
to the concrete walls.



These reinforced beams are incredibly
strong and can easily hold many
thousands of pounds.



Top view between the garage ceiling and vault roof.
The slab is designed to be completely self-supporting
and using 5000 psi concrete resulting in a vault
with a heavy-duty industrial strength roof. 



The metal roof sheets are carefully maneuvered in place.



The Mukunda crew are construction
professionals in every respect and know
exactly what they're doing.



First set of metal roof sheets are in place.



All metal roof sheets are in their proper position.



A view from the rough door opening.




The door frame is about ready for the next phase: 
installing the heavy-duty fire-proof security door.




The roof slab and hopefully the floor will
be poured just before the end of 2012.  



With a short break now over the Christmas period we have time to reflect on all the planning, preparations, anticipations, culminating in a tangible structure taking shape before us. It is also a time to sincerely thank our generous donors again who so kindly donated to this project. Without your help none of this would be possible.
