So the day to lay the foundation slab finally arrived! It’s all hands on deck as we started at 7am mixing the sand, cement and concrete (as it’s known in Mombasa!)

We had over 50 men on site who work non stop until the job is complete, we used almost 100 bags of cement so it’s no easy job. The slab is now complete so we are praying for a wet weekend. Water is needed so that the slab will dry at a constant rate and therefore not crack, on a normal day in Mombasa the slab would need to be watered almost constantly for a few days.

I will upload some completed photos and update on our progress next week.

Thanks Xx Glyn & Jane
