Saturday, 3a.m.: the trucks with the modules of the Odoo house finally arrived to their final destination: next to the central building of our university, and we could start the last craning process of this season.
Today the Villa Solar is open to public, which means that the day before yesterday we (and all the other teams) officially finished the building works and the organizers took the houses over. It was an amazing moment.
We are the very end of the building works because in three days the house Odoo should be completed and look fresh and crisply new, ready to receive visitors. The shifts are exhausting, but no one can crush our spirit. The main structures were set on the previous week, and now we install the secondary...
'Cause many of you have asked what did the other teams bring, we were spying on the other competitors' parcels while risking our lives. :)

As the days are passing by, our house is becoming more and more complete. It's only one week left for the Villa Solar public opening ceremony!
Here's a the first of the video series showing how we spend the time in Madrid. The first episode is about the first days: the flight, exploring the local cusine, sightseeing, preparation for the assembly works.
With the opening ceremony and early-evening party the Villa Solar is officially augurated. But before that we unloaded from the trucks, so we confirmed that all the elements of the Odoo-house arrived.
Today we 've amde a spectacural process in the assembly works: solar panels got installed during a long, late-night shift.
On Sutarday we made big progress in the assembly works: four modules were craned into their position, only the summer wall missing - shall arrive soon.
On the first day we got to know the streets of Madrid, the scene of the competition, we discussed the following weeks schedule, and rested for the following day's construction.
The construction team has left to assemble the Odoo house at the Solar Decathlon competition in the following two weeks.
