A big day for the construction team. Mixing concrete island style, setting up main steel work and prepping the floor boards. We had a good 'ok Aussie BBQ followed by a moving afternoon exploring local village life. Out group got to watch an old lady making gateau for the market. They are a long skinny pastry type dough deep fried. The guys had a look through the house and sleeping quarters. The cooking hut is across the yard and the washing area is separate again. Rather humbling experience I think. I know I will enjoy and appreciate my comfy bed tonight!
The end of the first day of construction. The photo may not show a huge amount of progress but believe me this photo shows the beginnings of the foundation for FLAT stage two. Note the holes are all ready some steel is in place and thanks to Reg and the local phone company we now have the steel needed to continue. We have had 4 local deliveries after much harassment from Reg to get the product through ( if it rains the road is not suitable for anything but 4WD). Good on you Reg! He'll be on site and working tomorrow 7am. Concrete starts tomorrow!
