Slab and Concrete Roof Construction

Constructing the framework of slab roof is quite complicated  I thought it was easy and doesn’t need a lot of work but I was wrong. It needs a careful planning and time dedication.  Adding irons and pipes for electric line was already done and on Saturday finally they will finally pour cement to finish the constructing our concrete roof.


My mother informed me that we had extra iron bars that we could use on constructing the second floor of our house. I hope we could save and do it soon but with the current phase of my online opportunities I wonder when we can start the construction again. Business is quite slow this month.

GroundBreaking on the First Day of Construction

Finally the construction of our house was started few days ago, they started it after a ground breaking prayer or what they called ground breaking ceremony when building big establishments where the Mayor of the town is invited, this is to bless the land and probably the home owners.

Ground Breaking Ceremony

As what I have read Groundbreaking is a traditional ceremony in many cultures that celebrates the first day of construction for a building or other project. Like what I have mentioned about this ceremonies are often attended by dignitaries such as politicians and businessmen. The actual shovel or spade used during the actual groundbreaking is often a special ceremonial shovel meant to be saved for subsequent display and commemorative information may be subsequently engraved on the shovel.
