So tired but there is progress. Fresh pictures hot of the press. Almost half the roof panels are up. First impressions are good. Today in the sun roof hot to touch but beautiful and cool underneath.

I haven't been this excited about pictures since I found my dad's playboy magazine at 9 yrs old.thanks

I am still around. The 8 meter wide folding doors are installed and look magnificent. The whole house is to be proud of. Still building it as we save money. No I am not on the Dole and nobody is givi

We have power but a bit unreliable about 4 brown outs a week. No town water but put a bore with jetmatic in rear dirty kitchen and a submersible pump in bore out front. We all drink that water. Pouring small 4th floor slab for water tank tomorrow. You can see Sogod bay out back to the left.

Poo tank and plumbing all taken care of.

Nice? If I had those views, I might never come down from the third floor.

When you say "bore" I take it you mean you had wells drilled?

With the unreliable power, a quiet backup generator would probably be a good idea...especially where you are using well water.

Same same.

 

Well water in Oz  is called bore water,  wells drilled / bores bored, both with a well rig.  LOL !

That is where the jetmatic comes in handy

Well a Jetmatic is an old-fashioned hand pump. We installed one in our dirty kitchen.

Easy enough to mechanise it with a flywheel and an appropriate sized motor if you want to, and still be able to hand pump in a brownout. Electric pumps are just a PITA when they break down.

you have been doing a wonderful job on your build. I see you put a lot of thought into what you wanted I am currently in the planning stages myself we have bought our lot in Valencia with a area of 1749 sqm. but before we build our home i want to build our wall for securty of our materials by my Calculations i will need almost 50K CHB just for the fence walls, but in reading other posts the quilaty of the CHB is not very good so i was planing on buying a CHB machine and manufacturing our own to get t a better block.

1,Where did you buy your machine?

2.what did you think of the quilaty of it and the product it produced?

3.On average how many blocks were your workers able to manufacture in a day?

thank you in advance

I purchased my machine online from Manila through sulit with the pan mixer. 

Machine was ok but motor position was quite bad and problematic so I modified it's position. We have no problems now.

We use a 1 to 5 mix which gives you 27 to 30 blocks per bag of cement. These are load bearing blocks.

I tried weaker mixes but was not happy with them.

2 workers with machine will make 300 or more in a 8 hour day.

May I suggest you put a temporary "leg" under the truss as insurance. Perhaps make it a bit short so you can tell if there is any deflection in the truss. Just a thought. It looks like you are doing a great job and have wonderful views. Enjoy mate.
