Second Floor Foundation

Today was a big day in the construction of our house. The foundation of the second floor was put in. The operation was much bigger than I thought it would be...

There were over TEN cement trucks lined up down the road ready to dump their loads at our site. The trucks blocked all the traffic down our road causing some traffic, and making some drivers angry. (I can totally understand their frustration...)

Each truck would come to the house, and connect the large contraption that would stretch to the top of the house to deliver the cement. Pretty cool.

Apparently, it is a big deal in Indonesia to start on the second floor. We provided lunch (Nasi Padand) for all the workers. They were happy, and pleased to pose for photos.
