Preparing for the big day: The masons arrange concrete blocks on the roof, then the electrician arranges all the electric conduit.
Dozens of workers descend on the construction site to get the whole slab done in one day. Some haul the sand, gravel, cement, and water, others fill the buckets with the mixed cement and pass them up to others on the roof.
My job for the day was getting a meal together for workers-I recruited some friends to help!
The finished product! The concrete has to be watered for a few days.
Masons pouring the floors
Now that the shell is up, the workers been making door frames, cementing them into place, and putting plaster on the walls. So much has been done, yet so much work yet to go!
