More progress in the bathrooms. Custom mirrors have been installed, as well as the first sink, shower tap and toilet.
Balconies have been been fitted with the wood decking and additional small rain drains. More and more rain now everyday and we hope that the window team can soon finish the last windows to close up the house.
Luckily not much rain in the last days so some workers are doing the outside painting while the others are working on the upstairs bathroom. The decking material for the balconies arrived as well and will be installed soon.
Quick night test for the lights. Everything works great and the energy saving LEDs have an amazingly low power consumption.
Electric team is finishing up the connections to the solar panels as well as the fuse box. They also installed the LED downlights on two floors and the tests work well. Few more lights and fans to be installed and than all of the electric work will be finished.
Unfortunately the wind threw off a few packs of tiles which broke so we have to wait for the next delivery from Chiang Mai. The downstairs bathroom is already tiled, without grout finish and toilet & sink installation. Meanwhile all the ceilings have been closed and all interior painted with white primer paint. Workers also fixed some floor toppings & edges.
The second floor balcony has been sealed with an anti weather and heat resistant acrylic paint. Also Some more ceiling boards are up & smooth-end and the first bathroom walls are fitted with tiles. The tile gaps still need to be filled and sealed with grout cement though.
Electric stuff on the upper floors is done. The workers added some insulation material and closed up most of the ceiling with gypsum boards.
Various different work fronts this week… A bit more outside primer painting to waterproof the walls and some preparation to build a little drainage wall on the roof before the solar cells are installed. The electric team finished up most cables, AC plugs and switches.
All railing welding has been done and most of it is also covered with wood. They still have to smoothen the wood surface of railing and stairs, as well as applying some clear coating but it already looks really good.
