Foundations laid for the first 3 houses!

The foundations for the first 3 houses and their water tanks were completed last week.

A mix of cement, earth and rubble in the ratio 1:9:18 is rammed into the foundation trenches. For the houses, a layer of bigger rocks is laid on top of this mix and a slurry of cement and earth is poured to fill in the gaps. This layer is further covered with another layer of the original mix.

Once the curing process is complete we’ll commence marking for the walls of the houses and water tanks.
