The build proper couldn’t begin until we found a man with a chainsaw who cut up the trees we bought a couple of days ago. Once they were cut into 10′ and 12′ lengths they were carried one by one to the build site. While the fundis – and a few underage helpers – dug the holes for the support posts, we found a man with a tractor who trundled to the river for sand and picked up a load of aggregate for the foundations.

It was hot, sweaty work, but very gratifying to see some progress on site.
