About Buildingtesla

Buildingtesla originated out of curiousity how the construction of the gigafactory was progressing. I found that there was not an easy quick way to follow the building progress through time.

As a amateur web developer i saw an opportunity to build an easy maintainable solution to this problem, develop my programming and webdesign skills and create a nice tool for the tesla community all in one.

Please note that this is a Tesla FANPAGE and not in anyway linked to Tesla inc.

If you enjoy this site please consider donating, i'd like to remove the ads that currently pay for hosting and possibly get some paid sattellite imagery !
