Granite pillars for the foundations

It is not taking millions of years, but day by day the process is moving.



Getting all the materials onsite has been step by step. Waiting for the water levels in the foundations to subside from our two meters of rainfall postponed putting in the beginning concrete.





Every Saturday morning the University of Washington students and their two faculty members have been helping us with work on the site of the new construction. They are amazing and are ready to do any type of work including mixing cement, laying bricks, making paper mache, while also helping with the gardening and landscaping.

Even though we had an out of season rain last night, the work could still go on today (February 23. 2011).
