In the last 10 years or it have been popular to research just how bad
your grand-great parents were........bragging rights I guess.

Don't have any new pics of current work, just more shots of the rebar work
and other trivial pre-build stuff.
So if anyone wants more let me know.
Returning to Florida for 3 weeks or so do have a pick off the falang money tree.
Well that would be selling off some guns, and other stuff.

No Not that far, have being there many times, Very nice place.
We like to visit Tarpon Springs, a few minutes drive north of Tampa, There is a Greek sponge diving community ,That was transplanted there from the Greek islands in 1905, If you like Greek food , it's a great place to spend the day,
by the docks,There are Greek bakeries, Tavernas and Gift Shops, also there are boat rides demonstrating sponge diving.

Papa's window was a renered/plastered/stucko (spelling) opening.
4 men came out and fabricated the frame, tracks and all. Took about 3 hours all in all, 2 days later returned with all the glass. 2 men and about 2 hours job complete.
My thoughts are a med quality job, as the window was not properly sealed, caulked to the frame, but that comes from a air seal perpective as I do think they will be water tight, just not air tight. A picky detail as the room will not have air-con.

rice storage bldg


This was moved to its present location, after the fill dirt was "installed" and is now within 1 M of the back corner of the new build. I laid out where I wanted the house only verbally, so now it has to be moved again. What the builder doesn't know is IF I pay to move it, it comes out of his pocket .
I will deduct it from his final payment, as IT IS his f*ck up caused by siting the new build too close.

Remote update ...............
All extra wood has been delivered on-site, form work now complete.
However, too much rain to finish pouring the concrete at this point.
Maybe monday or tuesday

cook table


I found some scrap lumber, a 6x6 teak post or beam out in the scrap pile and made a cooking table. It took 6 people to move it into place. Note the little colorbond covered charcol cook area on the left.
Mama was very very happy
