A photo series of the construction of the “Omuhonga Primary School” follows!
After the Christmas party of the construction workers last weekend and before I leave for a safari road trip with Urs, I visit the construction site in Omuhonga for the last time. Now, the people who are responsible for the roof construction pitched their tents at the school. On this occasion, I let the professionals (Gerson and his team) explain the roofing steps.
Upon visiting on Monday (12/12/16), one roof frame is already built. This can be seen as metal triangle on the following photos. The next step is to weld nine more roof frames. Once this is done, they are painted with rust protection paint (brown roof frames on the following pictures) and after drying they are finally mounted on the roof.
Ten rafters (long metal carriers) which are welded to the frames finally give the construction the necessary stability.
Then some wires, which are supposed to hold the insulation, are tensioned between the metal elements. And as soon as the insulating material has been fixed, the 80 trapezoidal sheets (the actual roof, so to say) will be fixed.
If everything goes according to plan, the roof should be finished before Christmas! The next steps will be “flooring”, “painting”, “installing windows” and “furnishing”!
And then it is time to say: clear the stage for incredibly much input which searches its way into curious minds!
All the best for your 60th birthday and many thanks for this donation, dear CONDOR! Excellent thing!
