After burning some of the granite rock out of the way we start digging. How hard can it be after all?
Mr Didymus & Mr Tongai in the easy trench
Edmore getting that earth out
and then signing off for the day
Well up here what you see on top is not what is lurking underneath – more rocks.
OK more burning was to come. The rocks are all under ground too!
after burning – well nearly after
Somethings still alight in there
And it is a building site with a pretty good view too.
It slowly goes down in size
We have to dig round out to burn it. Lots of digging
Temporary retaining wall
The men who bring the sand and gravel take a look at progress
If this tree was to fall down…
Mr Garikai does the job first
and shows us how its done
He’s getting good at this
The site is ready
Measuring for the footings
