Seasons greetings, it may be Christmas but we’re working hard here to build our guard house. Today we have begun pouring our foundations.
This is what we’re currently building. A small building at the entrance to our site which will provide security, a site office and importantly enable us to test our bamboo structure and techniques.
Today we’re removing the bamboos from the treatment pool.
The reinforcement for our foundations are being expertly crafted on site, whilst the foundations are dug.
The footings are being dug, 12 x 2ft2, we’re still mixing our metric and imperial measurements.
We’ve built a drying rack for the treated bamboos ready for when they come out of the pool next week. The bamboos are going to be left vertically so the water can run out.
There has been a flurry of activity the last couple of days. We’ve had some deliveries of materials for making the foundations.
