Building Project Update 3

Today we made the first progress payment to the contractor. We were happy with the progress and when we asked him when will the entire work be done he smilingly said in a month's time. I told him to finish it between the two national days: Aug 31 and Sep 16. Judging from the progress he made, finishing half the work in 3 weeks, I am confident he can deliver on his promise. Next week his workers will start plastering all the walls and floors and then move on to painting and laying the tiles. Today the last wall (I called it the 'berlin' wall) that has to be knocked down is finally opened. It is the common wall between the 2 centres to facilitate traffic movement. Below are some pictures.

The office has to be temporarily moved to the training room to allow the common wall to be opened.

A worker setting up a wooden partition to minimise concrete debris when the wall is drilled open.

Brick wall for the frontage of the building constructed. There will be 2 windows and an air-conditioner between them and at the back of the enlarged meeting room which can seat 30 participants.

The party wall with the church office closed. It was previously a metal grille with rusty zinc sheets. See previous update pix.
