    Thanks a lot khun Loom and khun Sea Traveler but I have had very good tutors in you both.
    When it comes to the piling I’m not quite sure since it is part of the budget but I guess 80000 Bath.
    A mentioned before, there are 80 of these, 6 meter long and they are driven 1,5 meter below ground level.
    Tomorrow I go back offshore for a fortnight work shift but I will try to keep the tread going as long I get new photos. Nice work, 2 weeks on and 4 weeks off

    Panthip,
    Best of luck on the construction. Having someone there everyday (like your brother-in-laws) is great. I just had my house completed (April 22) and I tried to be at the site as much as possible to make sure no short cuts were taken. I tried to stop by at lunch time so I took drinks and food each time I visited. The workers told my wife I had a jai dee (good heart). They seem to do the things I asked without hesitation. Were is your construction site? I live in JoHo which is a suburb of Korat.

    I use to procrastinate,
    Now I just don't give a shit.

    Finally something happens at the building site again. The crew have been away and finished another house in the neighbourhood. Today 4 person came back and on Sunday there will be more. We also received a lot of prefabricated reinforcement mesh.





    The girls are well protected so they don’t become ”si dam”. It must be awful hot indeed.





    Then the reinforcements are going in.





    And properly placed.





    The architect, in the gray shirt, is watching the iron being fixed.





    The reinforcement are in place





    A small forest is popping up





    Finally a better poster sign. So now you can all read the name of the company.

    Thanks a lot for your nice reply harrymand. I guess when it comes to English the foreigners will always be the underdog. It’s only naturally. But there will always be some funny blokes around.

    No, I didn’t make the drawings. An architect in Korat did that. I’m a piping engineer so I cannot draw houses.

    Today we received some large pipes.




    Then the cement truck arrived.



    The cement gutter is lined up.



    The slurry is being distributed




    All hands ready at the gutter.



    The slurry floats into the pit.



    And the pits are being filled.



    A gutter is being prepared for another pit



    The crew is making good progress. What will tomorrow bring?

    04.08.08 Foundation work


    Its time to fit the pipes it looks like.





    Why are you cutting the pipes?





    They are lifted on to the scaffolding.





    I hope this goes well.





    The pipes are lowered down.





    And becomes a casting frame





    Then dirt is filled back in.





    Cement mixing





    The slurry goes into the shuttering





    Until it looks like this.

    Good stuff Panthip. Using the pipes is a bit different than what I did but looks like good way to form into the footings. Enjoying the posts. Thanks.

    Khun Panthip, I've seen the use of these pipes for concrete forms on a house that was built just down the soi from where I'm at. I think possibly it is becomming a more widely acceptice practice. Interesting concept.

    Know that you have a bunch of fellow builders cheering you on with your project.

    Keep it going.

    Sorry if I offended anybody, I’ll stick to English from now on. By the way, who is behind this site? I tried to find out but so far in vain.

    From what I’ve been told there has been some heavy rain in the area the last days but now work has commenced again.


    The workers are setting up quarters. This is not the same standard as a farlang would like to live under.



    Some progress is also needed on the building site so work with the reinforcement material continuous



    The columns are connected up.



    The rods are pulled in.



    Reinforcement details



    The reinforcement is being tied up.



    The iron rods are tied up with string




    I hope they are pleased with the result so far.
