» Dec-22-2012, Srila Prabhupada Legacy Vault Update
By Ekanatha Dasa
Camp Prabhupada Village;
The cool crisp mornings over the past week have only been broken by the sound of progress.
We must say the work crew headed up by Mukunda Prabhu are very professional, respectful and a pleasure to have around and seem to share the same excitement we have to see the project complete.
The large footings are poured using 3000 psi concrete strength to firmly anchor the structure from the rare event of a Hurricane or Tornado ever passing this way.
Now we have moved onto the walls with ICF brand: Arxx Steel, and concrete with an overall thickness of 13 inches and concrete strength of 5000 psi to give strength and resist moisture.

Stay tuned for the next update this week when the unique roof should start taking shape.
