Back to the Kitchen construction

Footings all poured. Concrete is cheap, so just fill them back up to ground level.

Ground beams are next :roll:

Kitchen: More progress today.

They are moving a lot quicker than I expected and will probably finish the concrete structure in under three weeks :D

So far so good.

Now have to deal with how I will finish and landscape the center area between the House - Kitchen and Store Workshop :roll: A lot of lawn and garden beds I think

G'day pipoz,

I'm just starting to research my own future build, and working thru your thread - some great info / detail here for novices like me, it's great. I'm only up to July 2014 so a way to go. :)

I like your workshop / studio - you've given me the idea of separate structures joined by breezeways. But on a much smaller scale then your "compound".

But before your thread moves on too much I just wanted to ask - where did you get the German Shepherd? And how do they handle the heat?

Cheers.

Hi Zoss,

Yes the Workshop-Studio was a steal. It was originally an Amazon Cafe Coffee Shop, that a gentlemen in Udon Thani had for Sale. So I had it dismantled and brought to my place, reassembled and extended a little in size. Then added an AC unit. Its about 42m2 with the outside Porch area and comfortable for Guests to sleep in.

As for joining the buildings, I do plan to join the House to the Kitchen with a shaded-walkway and maybe the House to the Main Garage, sometime in the distant future. Just looking at some ideas at this stage.

I bought the German Shephard from Chiang Mai, purely as a family pet. She is not a show dog, but she does have an extremely good nature. As for the Udon Thani heat, she has plenty of cool shaded concrete paving to lay down on, so she seem OK with it

Good luck with your Build

Regards

Kitchen : Roof Ring Beam

Not bad, its only taken them 11 days, from starting to install the drainage/dig the footing pads and get to pouring concrete to the roof ring beam, with and average 6 person crew. OK he still has to strip and clean up. Paid him TB 80,000 to do this part of the work :D
