    Norton,
    The house is in Roi Et just north of Hwy 23 inside Hwy 232. We'll invite you over when we get over there and you can check it out.

    Sure Norton, I don't have a address, but do you remember where her sister lives? It's just about 2 blocks from there.

    While waiting for the rain to stop, between showers they are getting stakes ready to set up forms for beams, builder went to get wood for forms but on his way his pickup almost died several times driving through water and when he arrived at shop they were closed due to flooding, so another delay.

    In the meantime it looks like they are raising rebar for outside kitchen.

    I'm curious how they are going to backfill and support under beam, all the loose dirt is mud, be interesting to see Thai solution to that.

    As of 4am this new day, still a steady rain with no let up in sight. Managed to get to Roiet city yesterday as flood water level down a bit allowing exit from my villahe after 4 days stuck at home.

    Afraid little or no progress on build for next several days Dennis.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Hi Norton, were you able to stop by the site when you were in Roi Et? I looked at the forecast for there and that's what I seen too, I guess we'll just have to wait until the weather clears up.

    No, Had a friend take me in his truck so didn't want to bother him. Our wee Honda Jazz would have been swept away.

    Dennis you said,

    "I'm curious how they are going to backfill and support under beam, all the loose dirt is mud, be interesting to see Thai solution to that."

    As it is a "beam" it does not require any support underneath once the concrete has dried. The concrete will reach roughly 70% of its final strentgh after 7 days and 90+% after 28 days.
    So providing the rebar is strong enough to support any vertical load the beam will be self supporting.

    If you are worried about the fill between the beams supporting the floor then I believe they will most likely use precast concrete slabs laid across the beams and then put rebar above them and then pour the concrete floor.

    So in the end you could theoratically leave the area under the beams and floor empty as in have a house raised above the natural ground level.

    Hope all that makes sense.

    Hi Ootai, I understand that, what I was talking about was because they had to raise the rebar for beams 30 cm in the outdoor kitchen, I was wondering how they were going to backfill area below on distance that was raised, here we would use sand and compact, but there I'm sure they didn't do that and the only thing I see that was available was wet dirt or mud which wouldn't be much to hold the bottom of the concrete, the rest of the forms have a couple inches of concrete for base.

    Water went down and forms were delivered to site, and I mean regular concrete forms ( I'm impressed), couple days and they were done ready for concrete.

    Looking in from the street

    Snowbird house build in LOS-9-5-19-5-jpg

    Living room, bathroom on the right, not able to see entry and front bedroom. I'm still trying to explain how to take pictures but I must remain calm if I get too excited I may not get any.

    Snowbird house build in LOS-9-5-19-7-jpg

    Second bedroom/utility room on left, kitchen on right, beyond that is outdoor kitchen, it looks big but daughter said it was 2.5 meter like it's supposed to be.

    And a nice picture of small building rebar behind house. The pour is scheduled for this weekend, I asked for some action photos of that, not sure if it will happen.

    Dennis sorry about that I misunderstood what you were saying/asking.
    I reckon they will just shutter down to the current level and then infill with some material and then concrete on top of that.

    My question is why are you raising the floor of the outside kitchen 30cm. I would have expected it to be lowered like they lower the bathroom floors.

    I finally figured out how to get picture of floor plan, I had it in pdf but that didn't work, I used clip art to get photo image.

    They had the outside kitchen 30 cm lower than inside kitchen, I didn't want steps, if it would have been like bathrooms which would have been about 5 cm I would have been OK with that. Our bathrooms will be at same level, only shower area will be lowered. Dry bathroom wet shower

    Thanks for the explanation. I looked at the pictures and it appeared to me that the floor of the outside kitchen was level with the rest of the house and you were going to raise it up 30cm.
    I understand you not wanting a step between the outside kitchen and the inside but if it was me I would still have some difference in floor levels.
    We have an outside kitchen and to me it seems like the missus likes it because she doesn't have to be so careful about making a bit of a mess.
    If the floor gets messy just get the hose and wash it out.

    cheers

    Then I'd have to put a floor drain in.
