LS Academy Building Update #11

The plastering (cement covering) of the brick walls inside and outside is finished.  The doors are finished.  Wiring was pulled through the building for lights and power outlets (a luxury in a school).  Next is the finishing of the floors with a paint and cement mix (like a fresco), painting of the walls inside and outside, and the pouring of a concrete apron around the building.

Throwing the plaster (cement) up on the wall.  I've tried it...much harder than it looks.

LS Academy Building Update #9

5 weeks ago we broke ground, and today we are under roof.  That is very fast, in any country that is fast for a 4 room building.  Next up is fitting the windows and doors and then plastering (actually cementing) the walls.

Under roof, steel corrugated.
