Coldest day so far. I heard on the radio that there were deaths in Dehli due to the cold snap of 7c. Warm enough to wear a t-shirt by New-Castle standards.
Homes here are built here using wooden poles with bricks to prop them up as scaffolding. The first floor walls are then built up and a rough wooden floor is
put onto top of that using bear wooden planks. Cement is then poured onto this floor creating a lintel in-situ. The wooden planks are then taken away.
No heavy lifting equipment is used in the construction of buildings apart from the trucks and tractors which bring the raw materials to the site.
