    They came with a drilling machine and drilled in to the soil to take samples and to find out where the harder stuff was to support the house. 3m length columns were then pile driven down, 22 of them.

    Just back from Surin, 10 hour bus ride on the crappy yellow line. Torture, hot, millions of flies, no internet, 3 days of sheer boring hell as far as I was concerned. That was in the village though, Surin itself looked better than it did.

    Looks good.
    Have used the same glass bricks for the shower room and should not used them from the ground up as you haven't.
    Dont know what your guys have used as sealant but ours used just builders mastic and it has discoloured very quickly so muggins here will probably have to scrape it all out and re do with anti mould sealant when there next. I wasnt there at the time they did it

    Thanks
    Yeah we liked the glass bricks, adds a bit more light in the shower area
    No sealant used yet, but they are using the mould proof grout for the tiles, the rest has just been cement up to now

    Its a big thing being a Monk for two weeks or two years in the army. When Jan's son did the Monk thing it cost me an arm and a leg Village party same as above etc . On the first night he had only been in the Temple for a couple of hours....phone rings , Boo can you find me a mosquito net getting bitten. later more phone, need water and electric kettle for hot chocolate. I thought being a Monk was going without. Wrong.
    Still it beats going into the army and it was a great party.

    Melnathan, I also thought monks were supposed to do without until I have seen many of them being driven round in top of the range Toyotas lol. I wouldn't grudge them a mosquito net though

    The tiling is coming along, but to me its a strange way of doing things. No windows or doors in yet, so I am hoping the dust, grit and rain does cause too many issues with scratching and raising the tiles. But I am thankful people are working at all, this is the second group of tilers we have had in, its a slow process. Wont be using the company again.
