Rumah Guru - Construction Update



Last week was a most exciting week for our teachers house - we started the build ON SITE.  This means that the villagers can SEE progress.  Prior to this week nothing was overly visible to them - or to you - the raising of the money, the getting necessary permissions and support, securing workers, ordering materials.  But this week, oh, it's visible, and it's all happening rather quickly now... 

We are not all talk anymore!

Check it out...

Monday July 10, first thing in the morning the materials and pre built frames were loaded onto a raft to tow to Desa Kukusan where we are building the house...




At the other end the unloading of materials was decidedly more "full on" as everything had to be carried up a gazillion stairs to the building site.  Luckily we had lots of eager helpers!




July 12,  we took cement over to Kukusan for the house's foundations and saw that the framework was already going up...  It feels like things are really moving...




July 13, the foundations are poured.



I couldn't get to the village today to see where we're at, and the carpenters will break for the weekend now.  But I look forward to bringing you more updates of the build next week!!!
