Finally we have some walls going up.
Just returned from a very productive trip to Chiang Mai. We've made a start on the exterior cinder block walls, these will be faced in stone, same as we did with the garage. You can see the lip on the ground beam, this is to support the stone work and will be slightly below the finished ground level. The rear wall, not started yet, will be a double skin Q-con block rendered, painted white and with three long strip windows.
