Bob On Site

Kira got a new movie at her birthday party last weekend. (Yes, her party was incredibly late... due to family being out of town for an extended period of time.)

Kira has been asking me lately about how houses are built. Of course I have no clue. This is not my area of expertise. Well, for her party, I gave her a Bob On Site movie that is all about how houses are built. She already has the one about roads and the one about bridges. She really enjoyed those two and learned so much about how these important parts of our world are constructed.

Well, we've been watching houses being built for the last 24 hours or so. It's pretty interesting. The movie starts by showing how Bob's foundations are built, then it shows a video clip of real construction sites with  foundations being built. The movie progresses this way throughout the entire process.

Did you know?
   - It takes a full week for the foundation of a house to dry.
   - Crews spray water on houses while they are being demolished to help contain some of the dust.
