Some Panoramic impressions

Our progress so far....... we still have nice weather with temperatures around 18 C during the day and working outside is still fun. At the moment we finished the small utility house (house in the middle), that will host all of the equipment that is needed for the supply of water, electricity and commonly shared things like washing machine etc. The small house (upper house) has a roof that is curing out for the next 15 days in order to get the supporting scuff holding out. After that we will start with the windows to close the house up and begin with the inside construction. The big house (lower one) is missing one outside wall that due to a change in the building permit is waiting now for 2 months to be constructed. Hopefully in the next week bureaucracy will move on........

TIP: Power trowel

The power trowel works on medium wet concrete surfaces. After finishing you get a very durable hard surface in what ever color you want. For us it was great to find out about the little machine, we saved a lot of material, time and money.

Roof is coming

So last week we finished the roof construction of the small house and the veranda in front of the house.
