Thank you for the information, Sir. Very much appreciated! Would have replied via PM, but apparently I'm too new here to get a PM license :)
We are State side for a few more months, shoot me your email address and we'll stay in touch. Would like to meet you and see your new digs in Ubon!

Our best to you & family!

Agree, look really nice :-)
What kind of grass did you use?
Hope the clean the ground for old grass before putting on the new.
They didnt do that with mine and now we are "punished" :evil:
I asked about giving some weed poisoning a week before they laid new grass but they said: No need will take away and new will not come trough new grass. Not correct :evil:
Anyway, will use opportunity to wish everyone a Marry Christmas :D

Not just downtown, but around town and out of town too !!
I don't know why but there seems to be quite a boom happening around Ubon.

New roof over pool area in an attempt to stop the water getting too hot during the day and to protect the kids from the sun

Very interesting and looks very nice. Also looks well organized

Can I ask what is the Footprint/Undercover area of Truss, is (overall length and width) between outer Columns. Also it looks like you have 3 steel Columns on either side (correct)

I gather you are going to lift the completed roof steel into position (on top of the steel columns) with a mobile crane of some sorts. Have you estimated the weight of the roof steel assembly

Regards

Since the pool is 12x4 meters and from the Drawings it looks like overhang at the sides is about the same as the width of the pool. I'm guessing the overhang back and front is about 1.5 ~ 2 meters max, so overall length & width should be about 15x12m..

Weight.. no idea on that..

Thanks Luc, and I probably could have worked it out from the paving and the scaffold frames and the, but I am a bit lazy today :lol:

Length: Column longitudinal spacing looks like 7 meters column to column center, so 14 meters long from first to third column
Width: My guess is 9.5 meters column to column, plus 600 mm overhang each side. Approx 10.7 meters overall width

Weight: Making a few assumption re tube diameters and wall thickness, my guess is 3,100 kg
