Building work developments

Most days there are just two or three men working on my house (max has been six so far) and what a great job they are doing.  Here are some pictures showing the different stages….

Everything is made on site, by hand – including ladders and the wooden supports where the concrete and metal joists will be put into later.

Just today, Pasek suggested putting a garden outside my upstairs bathroom with sliding door that opens on to it.  That will be brilliant.

I’m so excited!!!!  It’s not everyday that you get to build your own house in Bali.  If you want to see more uptodate pics of my building project click here….
