We commenced the house officially today. Along came the family and a small religious celebration to set up the columns. So first off food preparation, ceremony then a small meal. The ceremony is basically to tell the ghosts/spirits of the land that we are building a house and to look after us...We added a small offering into the foundations, collection of coins. We had by chance, some from Thailand, Seychelles, China, Maldives, Pakistan, UK, Australia and some middle eastern ones. Quite a collection. Hope it helped.
This afternoon we will start on the cross beams.
