Social Center Part 16 (Glass!!!!!)

No window is complete without the glass. And for the main room all 6 windows got their glass, 4 of 6 are complete frame wise.

And this brings us very close to being able to seal up a the building completely.


The Country Director Steve Driehaus came today to do a site visit (he is visiting every one of us PCV's homes/work 2 at a time). So many PCV's have come to visit the Center but he is the first PC staff.

And some good timing since it was a very busy day.

Here are a variety of completed window pictures.

Also about a month ago, Titi came up with a great idea of using metal windows that fold up for the kitchen. That way it will make it easy for serving, create shade/rain cover. A really good idea. And the Welder started working on it.

The biggest question left is what will Mazinga do?
