13th to 16th of November there has been a slowdown because of a death in the village, however Nui has had a talk with the villages authoritie on culture and he said that villagers can not work while there's a dead body in the village but as our workers are not from our village they can keep working so the pressure is off and they can just keep going.

Thanks Phil

It's great that the architect/builder is so good at the moment because Nui can't spend much time there for the next few days.

Jerome,
Just a tip so you don't have to squeeze in the ends of the form work on corners as you have round columns and some concrete will leak out the joints from the form work. If you slide plastic down over the rebar you can nail or clamp it to the form work to stop losing concrete and that way the columns will be square and the beam corners square.

Yet more family problems

Mum is not so strong and had a repeat incident of Tachycardia about 1:30am today

Too much drama, too little sleep = Tachycardia


Better news

Thanks for the idea. I'm sorry that I am not clear about your meaning. However there is no need to explain in more detail for me as the beams have already been poured,

I'm falling behind in posting pics as I'm extremely busy right now. The link http://bit.ly/22h84MT has the latest as it's much faster to post the pictures on my server than put them here, probably 2,500 and rising as of today

Hi just curious what lengths are your concrete planks? 3.6m or 4.0m or ?

I presume they are 300mm wide, which seems to be a Standard and 50mm thick? Correct or not?

Can I ask what they cost per m2 supplied & placed?
