I happened by the temple lot today and saw even more progress on the walls and I just couldn't wait for my normal time to take photos of the construction. They are really going to town!
The amount of steel in the walls is amazing. It looks like the amount of reinforcing that is used in nuclear power plant containment buildings - and I think that is a good thing. It will stand for a long time and be resistant to earthquakes.
You might not care about such things, but as a professional engineer, I find the construction details fascinating! In fact, I have even daydreamed about quitting my day job to see if they will hire me at Big D Construction at minimum wage, just so I can watch everything first hand!
