As the cement slab foundation was layed for the Quonset hut, Bill and Dave stood on the dusty land listening to the noise of the engines pouring cement and the pounding of their hearts. It was an exciting moment with their future ahead of them-the steel arches hadn't been scheduled for delivery, water wasn't running though the pipes and they were still living in the tiny silver bullet trailer with no electricity.
In true western pioneer spirit, they trusted the planned and unplanned work that was ahead of them. In sumer temperatures, they welcomed the plumber to help lay out the conduits from the land that needed to be designated, and the workers who erected poles for electricity.
As they drilled bolts into the metal frame, the Quonset hut developed strong muscles so that the skeletal frame of arches, installed as panels one-at a time, would be strong.
