Estudio Damgo - Week 11
This week the tinik bamboo has been delivered to the Foundation campus tool shop where the students cut and assemble it into trusses. There are a total of three trusses to transport to the site with the dump truck. The butong bamboo columns have already been set in place on site, and are temporarily held together by re-bar until thru-bolts are fastened. It is always exciting to see the form of the building take shape in the 'z' dimension! The students can now appreciate what can be accomplished with good planning, detailing, and the hard work.
Three trusses are loaded into the dump truck along with workers and students. It's a full truck going to the site today!
Bamboo columns are standing tall above concrete pedestals. Trusses lay on the side waiting to be installed.
Below ground, Jay and the students work on walling in the septic tank with hollow blocks.
