    ^ TD great progress, those blocks really go up quick. Perhaps its not obvious or i missed it but what did you tie them into the concrete uprights with? The last time i used them i drilled up the columns and used some 6 mm rebar.

    Good morning to you!

    We used these, same as he used on zone 1 and 2.



    I'm not sure if they are the best, but K.Pot started using them and the place has not fallen down yet!!

    17 days to go until i am out of here (lol as long as the plane is still flying and BKK airport is open, that is)

    You are most welcome Betty and I hope, as I said before, that it inspires more build threads to come to the forum (after all, we all like a good construction story, don't we!?).

    Thanks to everyone who contributed, commented or just read and followed my littl... epic tale.

    Separate garden thread to come later this year, after being inspired by BiP's excellent garden story.

    tick tock, Norton!!! I'm totally humbled by the support for the thread

    i have finished working now so i have a bit more time on my hands until the plane flies from DXB to BKK

    Will have a go at updating the build this coming week, just in time for the 'take over'!

    I estimate 12th May, though i still can't believe it...

    Hey NPT!... hows things..!?

    yeah... i missed the travel out by about 1 week and as a result... stuck here until everything comes to its senses and some limited service resumes.

    although its hard to obtain... I HAVE got the exact specific insurance cover and arranged the fast track COVID-19 test.... i just need the plane to get on!!!

    i will re-start the update posts next week... its still not finished even though K.Pot (bless him) has continued working on everything

    I guess he needs cash same as everyone in Thailand just now.

    Stay safe

    Now...where was I...?

    Door frames

    Pictures might be a little out of sequence from now on as all the photos are in one massive folder

    Not this first one though because there is only...one picture

    Door frames placed in the upper level of Zone 3. Earlier photos show other frames



    This shows the access door and En-suite door for bedroom 3

    Roof truss materials









    If you remember from Zones 1 and 2, K.Pot made these by cutting through the box section then welding it up at the desired angle.

    He made templates to make this process easier and quicker

    Roof truss assembly

    K.Pot was on a mission to get that rood up and tiles before the rains came.














    You can see this gable is smaller than zone 1 -4m wide, not 6m

    The roof develops!














    It looks tall without the paint and wood effect line to break it up!

    its narrower too which adds to the illusion

    Good morning all, from sunny Bo Kwang Thong!

    Yeah... As Mr. Norton kindly explained ... I finally made it back to LoS after an epic trip from Dubai, all the hoops to jump through, ASQ, and money to pay etc etc.

    Sorry to all for the tardy conclusion to the build - I will make amends now.

    Just got to get my hard Disc from the packing (its got all the pics on) and we are away again.

    Thanks all for your patience.
