A week on Cullen Street

The speed at which the new Dollar General Store is rising is impressive. On Tuesday of last week steel beams were being erected.
 On Wednesday morning horizontal beams were being placed and the shape of the building was clear.
 By Wednesday evening most of the roof beams were in place.
 On Saturday morning the exterior shell had been installed at the back of the building, though work had stopped, perhaps because the wind was too strong.
 A lot of concrete has been poured for this project.
In a few days the shell will be complete and then it will be hard to see the progress as work will be mostly inside.

Not on Cullen Street but rather on the corner of Scott and Elm, the house that burned in January has been removed and the foundations for a new house have been poured.
