1st official plans. There appears to be two access roads running between both buildings. Still waiting on an artist rendering of the finished assembly plant. Concrete in October!

Actually, if you look closely it's 3 long skinny buildings with almost 4 million square ft. of floor space.

BTW, I just noticed a 10' pipeline easement under the toll road to the other side. Hmmm, interesting. Boring tunnel?

Video from late afternoon on Thursday is up! Despite the rain in the forecast for the day, the site was so dry, it was as if it was missed or it could have been a quick shower that was over before workers could park their equipment.

With Tropical Storm Beta moving into Texas the forecast for Austin in a possible 2.25 inches of rain through Tuesday.

With that much rainfall most of the dirt work will come to a screeching halt and it will take a few days for things to dry out before any major dirt work can continue.

The last time it rained I think they got around 1.50 inches of rainfall and they had over 100 degree temps to help dry things out. This time the temps will only be in the 80's.

It's currently raining here, but nothing crazy yet. Monday and Tuesday are pretty much rain most of the day but Wednesday onward should be clear and sunny skies with temps in the high 70s and reaching low 80s by Thursday. We'll see how these next two days turn out!

The temperature is also dropping as well so we could be fun on into cold weather in the next couple of weeks.

From Teslarati...

“The three buildings that will comprise Giga Texas will be built in parallel with each other, with the first structure covering about 1.7 million square feet, the second covering 900,000 square feet, and the third one being just over 1 million square feet. Considering that Giga Texas will be building the Cybertruck, Semi, Model Y, and Model 3, it would be quite interesting to see which buildings will produce each vehicle.

Elon Musk has actually provided some comments on the Gigafactory Texas site plan, stating that the entire diamond-shaped structure would be aligned on true north. The Tesla CEO also explained that while Giga Texas will have three main buildings, the open areas in the site plan will actually be covered, creating a monolithic appearance for the entire structure. Remarkably, Musk has noted that the gaps between the buildings will be roads for semi trucks, which means that large machines will be able to drive inside the factory.“
