In May of 1972, we got the green light from the UC Board of Regents, and we were under construction!
|We started with a one-piece mold, 24' in diameter. About like building a boat.||... We tried to pull the part out of the mold by hand. (Actually, it took a crane.)|
|... Pouring the floors -- concrete pads.||... Getting the plumbing set up.|
|... Building the kitchen bathroom core units ...||... Was this choreographed?|
|... We laid out the utilities in trenches. It was hard to get around for a while.||Now wasn't that easy?!|
That winter it snowed!
