It's Piping Hot!
Today was the Queen's birthday! The country was celebrating, the kids were off school, but our team and the contractors did not rest. Bright and early, we showed up to our site, excited to see our concrete countertops nice and cured and ready to be liberated from the formwork.
When we got to the site, Irina and Jacob headed to get the final piping attachment for the sinks, while the rest of the team got straight to work! Taylor unscrewed the formwork, while the rest of the crew worked on taking out the foam to reveal our beautiful sinks! We will be installing sinks and covering the countertops with tile soon!
The hole for the soakage pit was dug out by our awesome contractors over the weekend, and looked amazing! Today, we finished it by placing large concrete cylinders in to the hole, and filling it in with dirt. This will be used for the drainage from our sinks! We finished up the work day by cutting and glueing all of the drainage pipes, and left smelling nice and sweaty!
After dinner, we finished off the evening by putting together 138 gift bags full of goodies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and water bottles to give out to each of the students at the school. We’re excited to be back on track, and sailing smoothly to the finish line!
