SWMBO is building a house for her grandmother she has also said, that she is not going to be in charge of building our house. Once is once too many she says. More importantly she is never going to use people from local village again. We're going to have to wait until I retire before we build our own real house. That was going to be this year until she decided to build a house for her grandmother. Now it's been postponed until the end of the next academic year.

You can find the story of grandmother's house in the link below.

After a 150Km round trip I arrive back with off white colourbond

We decided to get the roofing steel ourselves since we were going into Khon Kaen anyway.

Food for thought ;)

A hammock set up as a test and the posts will look better white.

It is clear that I need to loose weight.

Things are moving along nicely.

But when we try one of the Sherawood planks our welder decides that it is flexing too much. So it is off to the local shop and we get two more supports.

It looks like the ridge cap is still missing. Why is that?

I did say "Mostly finished." The reason is that Grand Mums house is using the same group so they are beavering away on that.

That is one of the 3 things still to do

One of the 3 things was to put a coating on the Sherawood. This was a water-based Polyurethane specifically designed for concrete.

I've checked the costing for the materials and I think it was ฿43,572.00

Floor "SheraWood" 6,384.00, Columns ฿5,880.00 roof "Colourbond" ฿13,878.44

The labour was ฿6,000 + ฿800 for wives costed at 3 people at ฿500 each for 4 days.

thanks for that. I'm guessing thats about 3mx4m is that correct?
from your experience do you think you could put walls in it. I'm thinking its not much different than a knocked down house.
and may be the answer to the "house that turned into a bedroom" scenario that i have :D
...also i see you like wood working. how hard would it be to make a quality Murphy bed?
thanks again Allan

3x4 is correct. Putting walls would work but you would probably want more steel in the floor.

The bed itself is trivial. However most of this kind of bed need specialist hardware and that is not trivial to get.

A bed that has a much bigger footprint than is usual, though still much smaller than the open bed, wouldn't be too much problem though lifting it into the closed position would be harder.
