Village house construction progress

This is how I found my village house when I came back to the village after having two weeks away at Petats Island!

Before I went to Petats, no work had been started on my house, and I was surprised to find the house looking like this when I got to the village.

On the day I arrived, the men were working on cementing the posts in. I don’t know how it is done in Australia, but here they put some stones in the hole first.

Then they put the cement in the holes. The mix the cement with water and with sand that they get from the beach just 50 metres away!

Lastly, here is some of the timber that is ready to be used for the house.
