Nam takes a break from early morning work in the garden to point out some items she wants changed in the new kitchen.
All the concrete is installed — including a meter wide porch around the periphery — with the roof extending about six inches beyond that.
The ceiling interior and under the eaves is up and partially mudded.
Everything under foot will be tiled — a great pleasure to me.
We bought tile two days ago and supported a black and white theme — white paint on the walls, white ‘marble’ tile floors, black with white flecks ‘marble’ tile on the kitchen counter, and deep black tile running above the counter. Black deep dish drop lights over the sitting area. We chose the same brown, rough finished tiles as before for the porch surround.
I’ve become adept at fixing the plastic pipe that carries our water and that was handy when a fire ruined the pipe that carries our garden water from the water depot above us and about 400 meters away.
The fire cleared out a lot of brush along the line:
And burned through one section that I replaced:
There were three lines running right next to each other. Our line services three users. It reminds me of the Thai approach to electrical wiring. There are huge numbers of individual lines running along the poles. A new service just puts up a new line.
Welcome to Thailand.
