Second floor (2)

The reinforcing steel and electric and plumbing pipes are prepared,
view is the study room and balcony
Yesterday was again a milestone in the project. The second floor was completed.

Part 1 was completed on 8/1/2011, part 2 two weeks later on 22/1/2011 and again two weeks later on 5/2/2011 part three was completed.

For part 1 we used 137 bags cement, and 11 extra workers 33 total
For part 2 we used 110 bags cement, and 3 extra worker 25 total
For part 3 we used 104 bags cement, only 22 workers

As the walls for part 1 and 2 are finished already, I expect we can complete all 2nd floor walls in one week from now.

At the end of the day we had a party again after the salaries were payed and I announced that as of next week 5 workers will be released.

Below again a brief picture show of this memorable day.

and snacks and BBQ sticks (chicken feed, blood, and intestines)

They have fun and like this kind of parties
