The building to house the new malkha centre has now reached the exciting stage of erecting the trusses to hold the roof, and by the time you read this most of the 13 in the main building should be in place. Note the brilliant traditional technique of load distribution which enables low-cost, low resource, long-life ... and beautiful...structures.
Now that the problem of teakwood is resolved work on the main beam and doors & windows can begin.
Though at present there no buildings nearby, our centre will eventually be closely surrounded by cement-box neighbours [sigh] since our plot of land is quite small.
