I think that we all like photos. No matter how much you would tell us, to see photos shows us exactly what you are doing.
It is looking very good. A question: why bring Dutch grass to Thailand? And how, seed or mat?

I miss the wet slushy mud of Thailand, London streets are so clean!
6 more days until i can immerse myself in it again...

But on a serious note, looking good, the end is in sight... I like all the trees
around in the neighbors lands.

just joking,
they did sent 10 kg seeds by mail, but is was not that good looking at all. to much dirt and the thai grass took over the place. to hot for the dutch grass or the water to salty, it died anyway.
we decided to put the thai grasmats inside after the construction is finished and the garden reshaped.

another week past,
building is going quite well ahead, even after a 4 day break (illuminated boat party in Nakhon Phanom).
the perimeter wall is up all around 150 m total. we reduced the hight by 20 cm to 1.5 m for a better look i not want to stay in a monkeyhouse for the rest of my life. and if someone wants to go over they can also do when its 2 m high,
the colums for the carpark are poured in. colums for the watertower and the floor for the watertank is in place,
a look from the front corner.JPG
a look from the front corner

so acrualy only wait for rendering and finishing touch,

and not forget the roof for the carpark and watertower.
carpark 8 x 4 m open sides.
the watertower wil only on down have a wall on 4 sides, the perimeterwall side will be kept open for walk in.
i dont know why some pics are put in twice whe i previeuw but it be so they are worth looking at anyway so enjoy.

How long it take to render a 150 m long wall 1,60 m heigh?
I think about 3 weeks (5 people on the job) and then painting can start we decided to take a littlebit dark more colour than the house, because the yellow turned into something almost white.
the building is in progress starting with the roof steel on the carpark.
so not so exciting nextweeksome pics again.

now the work is almost done, primer is on the wall and home, tiles in the bathroom are done, tomorrow they start tiling the floor in the home.
carport: putting in the seiling.
perimeterwall: rendering 75 % finished.

place looking good, one question though, your guest bungalow is overhanging the wall. Not sure if a problem were you have your property but it is not normally allowed if it is outside your property line.

I think there is no problem, we own about 27 rai fenced with 4 wires on concreet posts. and the home is in themiddle of the property so left, right and on the back it is all ours no neighbours in sight, around the home we have the wall marking the garden about 1500 m2 that mean a lot of gardening already. the rest is rice field, jungle, fishponds, and 40 mango trees
:lol:

So, the building is finished, even 2 weeks before Christmas.
It was a nice done job after all. some do's and dont's but no real problem with the crew.
only the tiling could have been done a bit more better but for Thai standards it looks good, some edges and corners are done a bit clumsy.
electric and bathroom fittings i did put in myself so there was no problem, what the farang do now and no problem, no problem was heared many times.

shower 4500w
mirror and some other stuff not jet in place.

the carport is ready the concrete 15 cm is in and the gate is in place

Place looks nice and now with the wall finished you will feel a little more secure, as you say the garden is the last task but should soon start to take shape once your clear away all the builders rubble ect. Glad to see you are happy with the end result and hope you enjoy your retirement. Thanks for showing us your build from start to finish, and maybe post some pictures when you get the garden in shape.
