An ongoing series of time-lapse photographs of the Abhayagiri Reception Hall construction site taken from the road in front of the mailboxes.
We plan to finish pouring the foundation in 2013 before the winter rains arrive.
The second month of construction focused on shoring up the excavation site with a concrete retaining wall.
It took many years to plan the Abhayagiri Reception Hall but only two weeks to dig a giant hole.
