Hi Alan,


That looks one deep footing the Thai man is standing in.


Just wondering (purely out of interest) why you had to go so deep for a single story building, was the ground piled up high first?


I thought we had only to go down till we hit the Sub-Soil.


BTW, I'm a pipefitter - not a builder, and I'm certainly not questioning your work!


As allways with your posts Alan, a big thank you for posting more interesting pics.

Canada born - but I'm true Brit.

So it'll be off with their knickers & sucking the clit!

Hi there well spouted mate ,the reason is they built up the land a few years ago ,about 1 mt so we went down to about 2.5 to 2.8 mt well into Virgin soil .

Here are some progress picks of this project..


This is a Big house about 400 sqm in all ,this is going to be a nice house wood ceilings and floors in some areas \ builtin kitchen with granite counters and a Island counter .
