Great progress on site!

Time flies when we're having fun at the site! So much so that there haven't been as many posts here as could have been. Everything is going well! 

Almost all earth brick walls have been made already and they look great as well! All the different shades of grey are actually quite beautiful on the bricks. We're only missing one more truck load and then that part is done.

All bamboo components have now been prefabricated and some of the roof beams are already lying on top of the building waiting to be installed after the Water Festival Holidays that take place this week. The beam shoes we will use to attach the bamboo elements to the concrete frame also arrived today.

Afer the festival we will finally start installing the bamboo elements, the first floor terrace and the roof. Also our experimental wall of waste filled plastic bottles will be made before I leave the country. I will keep you posted of all the interesting things happening here!
