Pictures from yesterday, of the Store-Workshop Slab on Ground.

Slab will be about 150 mm thick and the DB12 bars are placed at 200 mm centers both ways. I had them buy the little concrete bar chairs from the local CPAC Supplier, something like TB 200 for a large bag of them.

Mostly likely it will get poured today

Looks very solid.
Nice(?) thing about having a property is that you never out on "Projects".
They just keep coming every time you try to sleep or relax:-)

Agree with that.

This Store-Workshop was something that I really only half need. Nevertheless, it will allow me to consolidate all my bits and pieces ( garden stuff and motor bike parts) under one lockable roof - probably never to see sunlight again.

Who knows, at a later stage, this Store-Workshop may get converted to a simple type Guest House (for me), which is also what I also have in mind for the Workshop-Studio that I built last July (far north end of the block). Who knows, I might have friends, that pop over and get too pi..sed to drive home. :lol:

Whats is this Store-Workshop going to cost - probably about TB 650,000 :roll: but I will work that part out, as I go along. I worked on an estimate of about TB 11,000 per m2 for this one, because it will have a high external wall - roof structure much like the Garage, Walls will be from 140 mm thick Concrete blocks, Rendered both sides, plus I tend to use more Steel in my Roof Framing than most.

A little bit off topic, but woke up this morning and decided F It, I will stay here for another 18 months? :roll:

OK what to do this morning, F Tt, I will go get a set of Gibson's to fit on the Chevy V8. Two hours later, what a nice sound, but still second to the Termignoni's on the Ducati. :D

Then took it for a drive, whilst listening to "the WHO" :lol: :lol: Great Morning

If the trees are for shade, I recommend Polyalthia longifolia, which are the trees I have selected for planting along the West and South-west boundaries to shade the walls and a fair bit of the roof. They are slender and tall, can be close-planted, have dense foliage and are evergreen - there is very little leaf shedding, thus no mess to clean up. They are fast growing and reach about 9 metres in a few years. I will prune the foliage to the 3 metre mark to preserve the outlook over the rice paddies.
