1st Day of Assembly

Kim Rose, RMI’s VP, and the team first set up the jigs.  They then began assembling the first house.  This house is being set up temporarily in the RMI storage yard to make sure that everyone understands how it should be done, especially RMI’s Haitian contractor, Wilfred, who will be supervising the construction.

IMG_3890With all the various parts precut, it was kind of like putting together a giant puzzle or erector set:  part A fits into part B which then fits part C.  Once D and E are together, attach them to C – you get the idea!  It’s not as easy as it looks.
