Even though heavy rains have slowed deliveries and workers, quite a bit of progress has been made. The balance of the brick work is nearly done and the roof trusses have been fabricated and poised to be raised onto the walls. The veranda (porch) cement has been laid. The roof trusses are built on site and made of very hard rough sawn wood. With no snow load in Kenya, they can be placed on 6′ centers. The next step is to place the trusses, tie them together with the roof runner strips, then nail on the corrugated iron sheet roofing.
