Movin on up in El Jicarito

By Casey Callais 10/07/2016 — We love to see up construction. So far we have filled up footings with cement, put up columns for the main classroom and tied up the bottom beam. We still need to fix up the cement mixer and, um… install up the U-shaped support brackets that will sandwich the super adobe bags.

All planned for next week.

Meanwhile we have been taking lots of technical photos and recording our progress for the final report, which several people have already donated in advance for. 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. Donate
