Preparing for the Japanese students, we are all doing extra tasks. I got to do my first full day of real construction work. Even though I made many mistakes, it felt so good to be actually building someones home.
This is called the market site as it is just behind the main business area of Chandrapuri. We will build four houses here. The field is full of 40 feet long steel rods in various thicknesses. Our job is to cut the rod to the proper lengths so our students can assemble the reinforcement for 33 concrete columns and then pour the cement.
