EDII - 01 mobilization

Estudio Damgo II - week 1: we are mobilizing the site at Core Shelter, Bajumpandan.  There are 27 weeks to complete the building and site work.  Major task for week 1 include: site clearing, constructing a secure tool storage, verifying property lines and benchmarks, and staking the foundation.  In just four days, we've managed to get a lot done with the help of Core Shelter volunteer residents.  One of the biggest accomplishments was moving a large stack of clay bricks off site so we can stake the foundation.  With the help of ten volunteers along side five, fifth year architecture students, the clay bricks were relocated in six hours.
