Social Center Part 5 (Bathroom Ready)

So it is Day 6.

And the bathroom which was the only part of the structure of the building left incomplete (it was missing two door frames) is now complete. Well, at least the structure part. On Friday, we fixed a few minor plumbing problems and the water to the toilets was turned on. So only the floor has to be completed and then on to painting, plus windows and doors.


The new door frames

And the final completed structure

So progress is steady. Mazinga is efficient and a one man show with an assistant for the moment until there is more to do. The management staff pictured below does a mix of supervising, actual work but are responsible for making sure all supplies are there when needed. So shopping and going to the hardware store are pretty much a daily routine now.

Still waiting on word from the Town Council on when they will spend the money for the doors & windows (there part of the partnership) I have heard several dates but nothing confirmed.

Sabelo - The Accountant

The Management Staff hard at work.
