FCU CHALLENGE FROM DAY 7 TO DAY 9 : BUILD A HOUSE IN 30 DAYS




MY HOMESCHOOLING JOURNAL


DAY 7 :
28 OF SEPTEMBER, 2010.

It was already a week since we launched the challenge. All the members were very positive with the success. Last 6 days were really hot when the sun shone brightly direct on our heads. So....the rain on the 7 day stopped our job for a while. Time was running so fast...hoping the whether will be on our side.
Around eleven o'clock in the morning, a heavy rain poured Kampung Bakau for about one hour. Later the sun was shining again but....all the holes were filled up with water. What could we say ? Sometimes we had to face such unwelcome situation.
Together we dried up all the holes and proceed the plan. It was time to stand up the skeleton of the pillar in the hole.

This was my part. Piled up the sand for my brother to mix with cement. Up to this stage, I already grabbed the basic knowledge of building a house. I felt so fortunate for being homeschooled. This was a real life lesson.
The cement that had been mixed with sand being poured into the hole.  This cement would hold the iron skeleton in place.
My brother used a long iron bar to press the cement before it started to become a hard solid base.

DAY 8 :
29 OF SEPTEMBER, 2010.


The iron bars being cut into small pieces. Later we bent it into a square shape. We need hundreds of them in order to make an iron skeleton pillars. This process was not easy. It needed a strong hand like my  brother. The iron bar was really hard.

Rows of square iron bars being tied up to four bigger iron bars. This was an iron skeleton pillar that we glued into a deep hole with cement.
Two of the skeleton iron pillars were put in its place. We need more and more of the pillars to build a house.
One..two...three....action!!!
Another video shooting session......It became part of our life already!!

What happened to my favourite hangout place? My brothers cut some of the branches in order to stand up the iron skeleton pillars. What to say? At least...there were still another 3 branches left for me. I still can pick the fruits through the window when this double storey house is fully finish.

DAY 9 :
30 OF SEPTEMBER, 2010.
Nine days already? Oh my God... the time was running so fast. Anyhow, we were doing well so far. Just prayed so that the sun kept on shining to give us all the chances.

All the pillars were successfully planted upright. Thanks to Allah for all these possibilities.
What on earth they were doing? A kind of conspiracy ? Of course not...Project Manager and his assistant were discussing about the plan of the house.

So this was the plan of the house.
My brother was measuring the play wood to make the mold for the floor of the house.
This was one of my favourite task.... putting the cement into this big mixer . It really made a very loud sound. This mixer made our job easier and faster.
Due to lack of space in front of our house, we had to place the mixer at the car park. It was a few blocks from our house. After mixed the cement, I had to bring the mixture to the site project.
Helping my brother to measure the iron bar. All the measurement must be accurate. Otherwise, we were wasting the material just like that. All I knew...iron bar was very expensive.
Everybody seemed busy with their own task. The scheduled job must be done on time.
It was time to stopped the work. Cleaned all the tools and kept them safely in the storeroom. Took bath and got ready for maghrib prayer. Hooray..Let's call it a day!!
