Today was our last day in the shop and we were busy throughout the day finishing up tasks before we moved the tower to the site. A second coat of paint was applied to the tower while hardware was installed on the beecab.
After we placed the cab in the tower, we were able to weld the winch box and the foundation mounting plates to the frame. Then we lifted the tower to load it on the trailer to move it to the site. At the site we picked up the Rigidized panels and placed them in a building to be staged for installation next week.
We also placed our plexiglass model near the hive to prepare the bees for the big move.
