Installing a dry lining
The third part of the project involved converting the old
teacher's room into a telecomms office, in preparation for a
telephone line being installed in the village. For more information
on this see future projects.
This part of the project involved a lot of construction work and design
and was one of the most involved parts of the project. Unfortunately the
wood we had been promised for construction had not arrived and we had to make
do with whatever we could salvage from other sources in the village. Ironically
the wood arrived the day we left for home.
The room was stripped bear and the walls were lined
using recycled wooden panels, a counter was built to the
villagers specifications and the door and window were
refurbished, to make the office secure and draft free.
