Strong Roof Truss...1152 viewsClick the image for a full screen view. The double-C ridge purlin - the most important load-bearing part of the roof - was too short so they just extended it with a bit of rebar and connected all the hip purlins to it. Notice the superbly clean welding and the neat job of repainting the welds.
Only about one in six of the tiles had been tied down, the rest were just in place under their own weight. Hopefully this region of Thailand is not susceptible to high winds.

Very nice bathroom finishing1082 viewsClick the image for a full screen view. They must have broken a corner off the expensive black marble top and hastily repaired it like this.
An electric socket this close to the washbasin is TOTALLY inadmissible.
