It’s been a year and 10 days since the first excavator came to site. Today marks the last day we will need an excavator.
Our site is one big mound of mud, the past year we have changed the floor level by almost a metre in some places. This is just excess mud from previous excavations, left over materials from activities such as sand sifting and just general use of the land.
It took 1 excavator almost 2 days to level both the top and bottom terrace for us and about 1 or 2 days for us volunteers to hand level the area behind the buildings that he wouldn’t be able to reach. It’s now ready for us to complete the final touches to the land for the handover.
