It used to be common to hold this ceremony back in the days, now it seems it is becoming rare. We celebrate that the major part of the building has been completed and wish that the rest of it will progress with safety. Of course we don’t forget to party either! Today, our client prepared feast for us as well as drinks and presents. The treated us with great hospitality.

Normally everyone who has involved in the building process is welcomed. The contractors, the architects, the machine operators and the clients… Soon people starts introducing themselves and enjoy the mingle time. We even sang! I am really relieved and very grateful for all my carpenter colleagues and friends who helped us at this process. I will keep doing my best with my life to complete this very special house.

My aim is to build a house that will be handed down to generation after generation and loved for years to come. Thank you for reading.
