#6 -- October 1998: "Land Doe"

Construction continues on "Land Doe", the new and still unnamed pad development west of Jupiter Ridge. These photos were taken on 10-17-98 when Richard Cranston poured his pad.

Since the development still has no name, in the tradition of unnamed dead bodies (John Doe) and abandoned babies (Baby Doe), we will refer to the site as Land Doe until a name is picked.

More thoughts on the naming of the site can be found here.

Getting ready to dump some "mud" at Land Doe.
Richard Cranston makes sure the guys get the pier cage properly aligned.
"I see you got my back side. That's good. It's my best side."
Richard decided to go a new direction in pad construction, he had a "Spanish paver" look tapped into the cement. It looks good, but can you dance on it?
Close up of the paver look and one of the "molds" used to create the look.

Several OCA members sweat out the job.

Quiz of the Month: Can you identify the five members?

The northern tier of Land Doe with five pads. Richard's pad is still wet in the foreground. The view looks east.
The southern tier of Land Doe with seven pads. The view looks east. Gary Schones, whose hard work spearheaded the development, will use the pad in the foreground.
