Yes it's a 70cm or 700 mm cavity on the two side stone walls.
These will incorporate the services and downpipes for the roof.

We've reached another milestone, all exterior walls completed and we can make a start on the stone work.
The old crew are back on site to start their third project, Garage and Studio, Main Entrance walls and now the main event the Stone Pavilion.
It's a slow process and they know what they're doing, just leave them to it.

We also rendered the rear wall before the stonework to avoid messing up the stone.
More updates to follow.....

Yes indeed I never get tired of the mountain views, light and shadows always changing. I'm looking forward to the day when I can relax on the deck with my fave drink.

Most of the external stone work is now complete, just need to do the side walls for the sun deck.
But will need to get the roof on before we can do that.

Not sure if I mentioned it before, the original design included a fireplace, but this was more of a romantic impulse than anything really practical.
Well we decided to scrap the fireplace idea and replace with a square window giving us a view of the pond.

When we scrapped the idea of a fireplace and went for a window instead we went through many shapes and sizes, we finally settled on an off centre 900 x 900mm rectangle. This will have the same corten steel reveal detail we used on the garage for the outside, and white glass to line the interior recess 700mm deep.

I've been kept busy with work in Hong Kong so progress on the stone pavilion is slow until I can schedule a trip.
But here's some updates of the steelwork for the roof, I've adopted the same design as I tested out on the garage.

Tsjeeeee Andy, didn't look for a while and now you jumped ahead. It all looks great. Will check it out in Jan /Feb I hope.
Glad you did some tests for us :-) So the Q-con is working for you? Curious what is the optimum setting for thickness and cavity.
Still fighting with our architects not to 'forget' my Q-con double wall wishes but also making progress. Will post more later.
Seems you will be finished by the time we start. :-)

Hi Bastiaan, I trust you and Pat are keeping well and looking forward to being back inThailand again soon. I've followed the progress on your design and pleased to see your adventurous spirit hasn't been curtailed :D

I wouldn't consider using anything else than Q-Con, they tick all the boxes in my book. I used a variety of combinations for my walls on the studio and garage, optimum being 75/50/75. The garage temperature is on average 5º lower than the outside and the walls are cool to the touch. Of course the Colourbond roof contributes to that too. I'm using the same 75/50/75 on the rear wall of the Stone Pavilion. The stone side walls actually have a 700mm cavity, but that's a special one off :D

It's been a while since I've had a chance to post updates due to work commitments :(

The delivery and installation of the steel I beams was a major milestone as it framed the front facade and provides the setting out for the gutter and roof, both of which need to be hidden behind the I beam and not visible from the ground.

So here we go with photo updates.

Prepping and welding the I beams before the big lift

Undercover welders complete with spirit level lining things up

013.jpg
The top beam proved more of a challenge to position, some minor adjustment needed (big hammer)

014.jpg
Careful work to make sure top beam is aligned with the bottom beam

015.jpg
The beams are 9m long and 300mm deep and gives a sense the space is floating between the stone walls

Finally a framed view from what will be the lounge

With the steel I beams in place we can proceed with installing the framework supports for the gutter, which will sit behind the beam. Also, the stone work can now continue around the corner and onto the external deck walls.

We left a gap at the bottom for the floor tiles, give us a cleaner finish than trying to cut the tiles around the stone.

I wanted it to look like the beam penetrates the stone, I think they did a good job.
We will take the stone work under the beam once the work on the gutter and downpipes are completed

Next job is to install the gutter system and the roof. We can then get the stone masons back to work on the interior walls.
Slow but steady progress. :)

Thanks RR. I know the place you're talking about, I checked it out online last time. But I'm hoping my place will be better when finished, maintenance will be better for sure.
