Builders Beyond Borders starts walls on the preschool in Jicarito
By Casey Callais 02/28/2017 — Eight days came and went in the blink of an eye but left a lasting mark on the community of El Jicarito and 29 brave souls from Builders Beyond Borders.
The group hit the ground running and worked both mornings and afternoons on various jobs around the work site but primarily worked to raise the walls on the preschool building.
Check out this image of the group moving dirt inside the “worm” from the mixing station to the wall that is going up.
There were some heartfelt words and teary eyes from both the community and the group on the last day, and the connections made will be remembered for a lifetime.
We are posting regular updates about the project as construction continues. In the meantime we are offering an amazing deal for people who are interested in this project. Donate to help buy whiteboards, desks, computers, etc. and receive Knitknot’s architectural plans, Precision Structural Engineering’s structural design (compliant with the 2012 International Building Code), Seeds of Learning’s complete construction report AND a 2-hour phone call with the Seeds of Learning team. This is ideal for anyone who is interested in building their own superadobe project and the money goes to cover school supplies and resources.
