This morning, in spite of being two people lesser than usual due to illness, many exciting things were happening at the same time. The next two walls were being cast, the floor was already being cured, and the roof was finally ready for demoulding.

 The floor had a slight error when it was cast but was easily fixed by the workers by using an electric saw. Luckily we spotted the error before the floor was fully cured which made fixing the error easier.

 Next it was time to lift and demould the roof. Muthu spent at least half an hour trying to make sure that the roof was not stuck to the mould. When it was finally unattached, we lifted the roof together successfully. There were a few cracks and some of the steel was exposed but it was still in one piece. On the other hand, a piece of the mould came along with the roof and hence the roof mould was damaged.

 Tomorrow, we will demould the second wall and hopefully it turns out to be as easy as the first wall.
