    Concrete continues to be poured for footings.  Connection to the Silver Lake Water District (SLWD) water and waste lines required communication with the neighboring homeowner’s association, Seattle City Light and SLWD to perform the connection in the easement west of our property.  Tiger connected the waste line and continues to trench and lay piping east towards the main connection located under our private road.  Tiger is scheduled to lay the water lines next week.  Structural steel erection is scheduled to start August 6.
