It's an exciting day when walls start rising from the slab! It may also be a bit of an historic moment. Time was when buildings in San Antonio were primarily adobe structures. We've seen evidence of this in a series of paintings dating back to the 1830's that illustrate the four views of military plaza, North, South, East and West. I'll try to capture those images and upload them to the blog. So it's been almost 200 hundred years since any significant structures were built in San Antonio out of earth (adobe.) The Eisenhauer project is comprised of a total of five buildings arranged courtyard style. The building pictured is the first of three one bedroom cottages.
We're using six by twelve blocks on this project. You can see quite we've laid them up for a 12 inch wall thickness. More progress pictures to come!
