It was back breaking work, in the hot equatorial sun, but we got the roof sheathing up. Other teams painted, put up drywall and cleaned up the worksite after the hardcore construction was completed. Tomorrow we begin putting up the outside wall sheathing.
The wall sheathing should be interesting because the back of the building faces the valley side of the mountain.
Before we get started with today’s work, here is a clip of Monday’s progress.
At the end of the day to him called us we have a new building underway. This is the lavatory for one of the boys dormitories. I can’t wait to see the kids living here; hopefully the next time we visit!
We are super proud of all the work that our teams have accomplished over the last 3 trips. But, I’m overwhelmed by how much got done between trips. We are almost ready to open!
After all the hard work today, we took a short walk to the hill behind the property to see what we could see. The sun was coming down, the breeze was wonderful and the building we are working on was lit up by the setting sun. The big building to the left is the cafeteria that we built two years ago. The next building is the dorm we built 3 years ago and the silver building in the middle is the one we are working on now. Finally the two buildings to the right are another dorm/bathroom set of buildings that were built before our time.
The structural members of the walls and roof are now up! This was some back breaking work to get all of this up in two days, but, this means that we can start in on the siding and drywall tomorrow. We are ahead of schedule! More updates to come…
