Update: Earthship Guatemala Day 6

Building has been framed for the greenhouse and cement work is continuing.  Third coat was done on the vaults and the trash bottle parapets are being raised.  The planters were dug and septic lid has been put onto the flush toilet on the east side of the building.  Plumbing for the shower and toilet and grey and black water cells were done by Lou and his team.
