Had a bit of rain. This has been the heaviest rain that we have had for years, but the house still sits about 1.0m higher than this part of the land :shock:

This area still has landscaped, so it gives me a feel for which part to build up and how to slope it. Might did a small pond in the far corner, so that I can pump any excess water out through gate entrance onto the neighbors land outside :lol:

OK pumped out all the rain water and gave it a week to dry.

Now preparing the Driveway Slab on the north side of the property. Will pour it in two sections.

First Pour is 10 m3 and Second Pour will be close on 17.5 m3 :D

And the first have of the Driveway is down and managed to miss the rain :lol: Needs no maintenance :D

I have elevated it and will dig a small pond on the side, so as to catch all those pesky flood waters that come once or twice a year from the odd heavy rain

Hi Mark, actually it is a Landing Strip, First part is just 3.6m Wide x 16.0m long, but the second part at the rear is wider + longer so I can maneuver - turn the 380 around.

Just got feed up with parking in the mud and trampling it into the house :roll:

Phil,

I need to start planning my runway I guess... Unfortunately I have a very long driveway... Maybe can make it wide enough for a drone landing strip? :P

Nothing goes to plan and the driver of the fifth truck managed to get himself bogged. :roll: and then total stuffed up the access for the sixth truck ?

The Driver strayed off the established road line and into the soft fill on the land side and totally F..ed up the road buy trying to free himself. They (Thai truck drivers, can't get themselves out of a situations). So we ended up have to barrow the last 6 m3 (2 N 3m3 trucks), nearly some 40 meters from the truck to the driveway-gate entrance, instead of from just outside the gate. :roll:

No, that is not me sitting in the photo on the side, that is my 78 year old mate, who helped us barrow the concrete :shock:

OK, pour finished around 5.30 pm and now just have to wait for those last two truck loads to set and avoids the on coming rain in the distance, as well :roll: The mix was wet, had to add a bit of water

Now get the lights out and work through to around 11.00 pm, so as to get a decent trowel finish on it

Now back onto building the Kitchen Sala :lol:

Found a little water about 1.2m down, which is into virgin ground, so will pump it out and then pour about 75mm of concrete blinding

Have shifted the three water tanks and filter to the back side of what will be the new kitchen and will also extend the height of the side boundary wall by another 400-500mm

Moving on to starting the garden bed area around the big tree at in front of the Workshop Studio-North Side Driveway.

Need to remove two of the three three clumps of Bamboo (center and right side), then find some nice colorful shrubs and smaller plants :lol: Otherwise not much sunlight for the shrubs

May also cut down one of the three tree trunks, the one that hangs out over the driveway area :roll:

My mediocre effort to start the smaller shrub-plant landscaping in the garden bed area :shock:

Did manage to cut one of the trunks off the tree

Just have to wait to do some more gardening :lol: :lol: when I get back in 2 months
