    Been involved in mire than a few builds in the LoS and must say yours tops the list.
    Design, materials and workmanship is tops. Makes one think of this song.

    I agree.. that 'natural' palm oil plantation in front of the place gives me a sense of that countryside every morning Im there!!

    Mr Dhupp, I can't help noticing you have a fine perimeter wall around your property.

    You'll doubtless be wanting a couple or so puppies to make your home complete... once you move in.

    Free delivery, btw

    Thanks Mendip....lol we already have a couple of the local hounds eying up entry to the TD Towers plot.

    I like dogs, cats too but... we will be traveling a LOT once we got established and no one else will be 'coming in' while we are away so that would not be fair on any animal 'residents' left behind.

    ...and then there is that crocodile....

    I think PJ n I have already decided that the pond of fish will be as far as we can reasonably go, petwise.

    Actually, there already is one dog, so-say in the family - PJ bought daughter no.1 a puppy a few years ago, when they were living in the family home in Kingkeow.

    You can guess of course - Grandma has now firmly 'adopted' sed animal and Min is allowed to play with 'her' dog when she visits Grandma!

    Such is the way of the World

    Thinking about it, that will work out for the next 2 years because she is staying at her current school (v good school, apparently) until age 18, and will be living in the family home complex and coming to ChonBuri at weekends

    1st floor bathroom slabs


    Fitting the chairs under the re-bar




    The bathrooms for bedroom 3 and 4 are back to back in the middle of the floor.


    View of those slabs from what will be inside bedroom 3


    Luckily, we bought enough tiles to carry the balcony floor al the way into the door recess for the bedrooms


    Plumbing pipework all in place too, of course

    Morning NPT!

    I'm reckoning it's about 42 days (ie 6 weeks) from today.

    The actual finish date has not yet been confirmed because I have not yet told the area office the ''good news'

    My PM on site is fully aware, though.

    oops - pouring those slabs from the previous post!

    See? that's what happens when you have tons of photos to upload and are rushing...

    Here's the pix of the slab pour - sorry out of sequence but you get the idea

    Now if only 'someone' could swap the last two posts around....











    Thank-you k.Pot and his crane / concrete skip

    Pouring the concrete for the first floor ring beam

    Again, K.Pot made full use of his crane and skip, and I again confirmed why I chose him for this project








    Waiting to be concreted...




    As with Zone 1 and 2, all concrete was vibro'ed around the steel.

    Yh yeah... there was that good luck ceremony at the start, too...





    Car repair business opened up while they were there


    ''That's great Mum, but can we get Pizza...?''


    The intensity of arrangement borders on OCD...




    Daughter No.2 with phone...


    Daughter No.1 with cousin


    Almost finished the 'arranging'

    I was at work in the sand-pit...

    OK... back from the weekend, and back to the photo catch-up...

    Here is planks in place from beneath, for those interested...







    yeah...I know there are gaps but he's got it under control!

    and here's a view of a cut-out from the top view...

    Neighbours

    Oh yes... remember the Orbortor lady who raced in to buy the plot next to me for 500k? then got stuck with it when i did not 'play ball' and buy it off her for 1M? and then started muttering about building an apartment block? lol well......

    I spoke to the OrBorTor at the time re the likelihood of an apartment block getting PP and his answer was something along the lines of ...''not a hope in hell'', and so it proved to be.

    She had PP for a small 2-bed bungalow..... she has now built a ... 2 bed bungalow, and here it is:













    Looks a lil bit 'industrial' to me but there again, i bet her build costs were considerably less than mine.

    She's stuck with old Thai tradition though... the pink and brown colour scheme is, if anything somewhat reserved.

    The good thing is... shes also walling and growing a boundary so in no time, no one will see it.

    Someone did ask me if it was my servants quarters, so for now I'm letting that one ride!

    Ground floor blockwork

    Sorry for the short delay between the postings - my resignation is now submitted and it has caused ructions (!)

    Never mind that, though...on with the tale...




    getting ready...


    ...and they're off!


    Still using these tie-strips


    Forming the recessed entranceway to the gym and cinema


    PJ added that window to the cinema for ventilation between viewings - lol probably a good idea


    View from zone 2 balcony at the progress

    Ground floor blockwork


    Again looking into that recessed entrance way but now further on, with the pool bathroom wall evident.


    External looking towards the cinema, and they started carrying blocks upstairs too


    The extent of zone 3


    coming along nicely...


    A better view and you can see the blockwork started on floor 1 also


    the gym walls are almost complete


    Is that what they call an 'engineering fit'??
