Here they are! Yesterday, at the end of the work day, Christopher (age 14) took these pictures of the construction site. This first picture shows the side of the team house. This building will have two large dormitory rooms, and two multi-person bathrooms. You can sort of see, in this picture, the front and back porches (as these have floor sticking out, but no walls going up), and the placement of the window on that side of the house. Allen and Russell are standing on a scaffold in that picture - the wall is close to 6 feet high now.
The crew expected to do a lot more masonry work yesterday, but the delivery of bricks was delayed (hopefully the bricks are being unloaded at the site right now), so instead they poured some concrete beams for supporting the floor, on the other end of the same building.

Grade beams, plus the view!
Some exciting news: yesterday, Allen made arrangments to start installing our water lines! We will be connected to a municipal water system in a not-too-far-away village. With the backhoe, and the miles of PVC pipe which both arrived in the container in December, we are ready to tear through this project! Still, this will mean that the work on the actual buildings will stop for a bit, as the workers switch to this different aspect of the project.
As you can see, David was a lot of help at the construction site yesterday:
