We started with mixing the mortar and troweling it onto the walls. We had to get a layer at least 1 inch thick. We again had help from the local volunteers, who were much more skilled than we were.
The gentlemen were able to get all 7 trusses onto the roof and the supports nailed in.
We also got the front window panes installed. They were held in with putty that would seal the window once dry.

We then ended the roof work and started the dedication ceremony. The village chief gave a talk about how thankful she was for both Habitat Lesotho and us for coming all the way to Lesotho to help give Tumisang a home.
