Construction 10: The First Trees, roof progress etc

The rains have come to north  Bali, thus it is time to plant some trees so that they can begin to establish roots before the next dry.

The water well has made substantial progress since drilling past some granite stone.  It is now at 110 meters.  This is a relief; however, the real relief comes when there is water found!

The roof is really beginning to shape-up now.  It was very slow and time consuming to get the frame joined together, but now they are at the stage where planks are being laid down and soon the wooden, Ulin or ironwood, shingles will be placed on top of vapor barrier aluminium and plastic sheeting.

The pool team is back and have been working on the steps and the pool equipment room.  If the rains keep up they will have a full pool too.

Construction 9: Near and Far

Things are a bit slow now.  The pool crew has been on another job and the roof construction is slow due to all the handwork required.  The Javanese door that goes between the master bedroom and the dressing room has been installed and the plaster man has been completing the plaster work in there. The walls on the garage are nearly finished.

We drove around the valley that lies south and west yesterday and got some photos of the work from a new perspective.  Some rain has come and things are getting a bit green.
