We have completed the roof tiling for this interesting project in Sangkhom. We are now adding the typically Thai decorative detail and facias to the roof sections.
We have also completed the roofing of the 'cottage' which actually houses caretaker's accommodation as well as parking. The next stage is to add the timber cladding and rendering that will give it the appearance of an Elizabethan timber framed wattle and daub cottage. The timber framed windows will also be added shortly.
The two buildings on this project sit on a plot of about 4 acres and we are undertaking a number of other works on the land. One such project is the construction of a spill way for a large drain that runs underneath the land taking water run off from the hills behind the property to the Mekong river.
We also installed another drain and spill way that will handle surface water drainage on parts of the land as well as the roof run-off from the house itself.
We constructed a terrace that is located on the river bank, just out of sight of the main house. Being on the river bank it was necessary to build the terrace on piles, as with the spill way.
There arer a number of other sub-projects on the plot of land, but I shall save those for a later post.
