MY HOMESCHOOLING JOURNAL
DAY 4 :
25 OF SEPTEMBER, 2010.
We took 3 days to clear the site of project. Only on day 4 we started to build the house. In my calculation, actually we only have 27 days to build the house and not 30 days!!! We will try our best to accomplish the mission with the God help and bless. These is what we called a challenge.
Go FCU go.......!!
|The hut had been demolished completely. The ground also had been cleared from the left over planks.|
|Our FCUPRODUCTION MANAGER was shooting some video clips. Working and shooting seemed to go at the same time.|
|It was my turn to do some actions for the video clips. The cameraman was damn patient with me when I had to do again and again.|
|This was the first step in house making...MEASUREMENT!! |
|A hanging stone? The thread was tied to the roof of the neighbour's house. By doing this, we knew the margin of our house so that our roof would not collide with our neighbour's roof. I called it 'the art of house making'.|
|The measurement must be very accurate. You had to consider the horizontal line and also the vertical line.|

Everybody was ready with the next task. House making was just at the beginning. Besides the strong determination and the endless effort from all FCU members, research also play the most important role in house making. The experiences from the other house makers in our village also helped us in our technique of work.

DAY 6 :
|The next activity was...of course digging and keep on digging. The holes must be big enough and deep enough for the pillars.|
|They always discussed the work together to get the smartest technique to implement.|
|My main task was collecting and washing all the tools at the end of the day. Everything must be cleaned and safely kept in its place. Discipline was number one. Lets called it a day......Its time to rest!!|
DAY 6 :
27 OF SEPTEMBER, 2010.
|The heat of September sun almost unbearabled. We hanged a net over the site project, just to limit the penetration of the sun. Its worked!!|
|A jug of orange juice was always there for us to quench our thirst. Sometimes, more than a jug. All the small tools were put on the table for easy reach.|
