By the grace of God we have now finished preparing the ground for casting the basement foundation. The next step would be to put the plastic (damp course) on the sand in order to prevent dampness from rising up from the ground and into the concrete. Then we have to do the steel re-enforcement before we can cast the concrete. We finalized the casting of the floor with the ReadyMix concrete company (Afrimat) and once all the preparation is done, we can start casting. We will have to hire in a concrete pump in order to pump the concrete from the concrete truck into the basement at ground level. At the moment the weather is the one factor that slows us down, since it is winter and the clear days are often followed by stormy rainy weather. We appreciate your continued prayer.
