In the Philippines there is two speeds, slow (glacial) and fast (Usain Bolt). While the internet speed is stuck in the ice age our project is moving at near on light speed. We have now moved fully into the construction phase of our project. With sometimes over 20 workers and 5 carabao onsite work is starting to progress rapidly.
After finally moving over 100 bags of cement, 800 bags of sand and gravel and over 3,000 foot of lumber to the top of the hill things are starting to take shape.
We now have the foundations and walls of the kitchen and toilet, the skeleton of our bar and just a few days ago the first cottage was finished (all be it with out doors or windows).
I won’t go in to the messy details of how its all being built, it’s long, complicated and mainly because I typed it once already only to lose it to the evil computer spirits.
Rather I will let you look at some lovely photos and for anyone who finds still pictures boring there is a short video too!
Stay tuned next week for a chicken sacrifice…
