    Working on the cement fence. Luckily, the old owners left us their wooden storage area. I will have to be the one to throw all this crap away.



    The wife of the skylight boss is doing her best to help out.

    The cement fence is coming along. Can anyone guess the tree in the forefront of the photo that we have left standing? It is a word that most visitors and expats of Thailand have heard.

    The heavy rains in Bangkok continue to hurt progess on the merging of houses.



    Regardless, the talks between the contractor and the sky light boss continues.

    The wall that separates my daughter's bathroom/closet has been done. Do not worry about the space at the top of the wall. A fantastic open spaced wood framed, sky light extension connecting both houses will be coming soon. Assuming that I have enough money for this idea.

    The door that you see leads into the living room bathroom. One that one should never micturate in while showering.

    Looking into my daughter's bathroom/closet. Now that I am thinking about this, while growing up I shared a small room with 3 brothers and a broken down plywood closet.



    This young man from Petchabun province is still plastering away. I just heard that the entire crew is headed upcountry for the next 3-4 days. The reasoning was the needed a tiler and and heavy rains.

    We have already started to move stuff into the maid's room. Now where does all this crap come from? Chances are we will never need anything other than the suitcases, but one can only be so careful.

    I might add that we do have a maid. Her name is Nut and if you have perused TD you probably know something about her. But regardless, a maid's room. Never had one in my entire life.



    Here is the material that the skylight crew is using.

    great thread. Nice safety boots being used by the workers.

    Anyone here ever seen one lose a foot/toes/ankle due to wearing flip-flops while putting in skylights or building a wall?

    Or is the Thai way of 'don't think about it, and it won't happen.' actually true.

    Trust me on this one. The front look will eventually be different.



    This is what a good plastering mixture should look like.

    The backyard skylight is looking much better. The only problem is that they are out of materials. They wanted to know if a different color was ok. I said no. Let's wait a couple of days and get the right color panels. This is the kind of crap that can drive a person crazy.



    Now you may be asking yourself what the hell is this fridge doing in the picture. The truth is I do not know.

    Bought this fridge this past week from another falang who had to get rid of it due to personal reasons. Not bad for only B5,000.

    Still plastering the inner walls.



    Perhaps this might show a better view.



    Please keep in touch, because we do not know what is going to happen next in Bangkok.

    Since we have one roof exposed and the other roof soon to be exposed, I have been thinking about insulation. This company advertises in the BKK Post. What do you think?

    Looks interesting. I wonder if it would adhere to wooden shingles?

    If you have any foil installed it will have to be removed. I understand this type of foam also helps with security as it sticks to the tile making it difficult to get in from the roof.
