There and here they are presented in reverse chronological order, May 2014 to September 2013. If you prefer to view  them in chronological order (September 2013  to May 2014)  just start at the bottom of the page. 

On  some updates clicking the title in bold black, will produce  another page which in the upper left  will present an interior image  slide show with  pictures you would not be able to see without wearing a hard hat. 

Clicking on the red Read More  link will produce a  written description of the Update.

Like a construction symphony, the noise of various tools is heard throughout the building and different genres of music blend together from portable radios. The building is literally humming with progress.
