The silo skeleton

posted by Todd

Here is an update on the silo exhibit construction. SVI has made the first steel ring of the silo. There will be three rings that will be stacked on top of each other to form the internal skeleton that the original silo wood will be attached to. This of course is not the method used to build a real silo but because of how we are anchoring it to the floor and how we will be accessing the interior we had to strengthen the overall structure. When SVI has the three rings completed they will be able to bring them to the farm in sections and then place them one on top of another.
