A good day for Thanney today, and his band of brothers – apart from one rin altercation that took out 2 hours work time, the construction is on schedule to be where Thanney wants it to be for the end of this trip. He really has worked his socks off, and has achieved something that, a week ago, he wasn’t so sure would happen. Today four trusses were erected – 2 to go tomorrow, and some work, that Thanney will leave for the local guys to do in his absence, before July, will – God willing! – get done by them.
The rain didn’t quite obey today – it threw it down unbelieveably hard for 2 hours – electricity went off everywhere, it seems, including in our apartment, so what has been achieved today is nothing short of miraculous. So much steel…. pictures here to show those of you who might understand what it’s all about, and to impress people like me, who have no idea what it all does, except that I’m glad it does it, and buildings I go into stay up!
For the foundation, this is a remarkable blessing: and Thanney’s managed to achieve it way short of the money target he budgeted for, and with thenon-arrival (yet) of a further £4000/US$5000/
COPesos 14,500,000. That’s in the ‘bank’ for the next time: for which the budget increases anyway – should have been £15,000 this time, next tie I believe it’s £22,000. All the extra kids that can be accommodated make that a small price to pray…..
Thanney’s worked wonders – not only on the roof, but also with the guys who’ve been assisting him: they have a new found work-ethic that hey might not have had before.
