congrats on forward progress, is v. Good u find local labor as wify father was polite when mention your situation, his reply was perhaps his relative on koh samu could find u some helpers, the 1ktb/dy did not peek his interest, he just say everything in ur district very expensive. So must be a nice area to attract so many wealthy farang. Again congrats on selecting nice area and ur forward progress.

@7m high- scaffold, here bamboo tied with old tyres is how 'Scaffolding' is done. I obtained my Scaffold Safety Inspectors permit in another realm- none of what i c here i could ever pass for industral application.
Your watch word for today is:
Most likely u will get bamboo Scaffold so stay well clear, if u value ur health.

A heavy object falling onto a hard hat from above even @5m has potential to: bruse, break bones, cause lacerations, or give ''blunt force trama''.

Kick plats, Scaffold- tie-off's and Materals baskets can improve safety. Neither get priority here, so stay back from work area. A minimum of 5 meter to avoid any falling objects or complete scaffold collapse.

Look forward to some pics and that brandy some day.

like you mention Otis...yes its a nice place and very quiet...not so many foreigners here...only maybe between 10 and 20 who live here all year ( and i am not sure so many !)

and yes very expensive..more expensive than Phuket !

but its ok...i understand its maybe difficult to belive what i say...must only come here maybe to see what i speack about

the team for render are Burmese driving by a local Thai man ! not so expensive ...I pay 100 bahts for 1 m2 rendering !

some pics will come after...I am to tired even for this small extra work :roll:

and sure you will be welcome in my little house ..
