House ceremony

Hey all, this is a little diffetent, John decided he would write the blog.   We awoke to a vigorous anticitiaptipn to work ad hard as we could for the day. After a hardy breakfast, we were off in the tuk tuks to admire the spoils of our labor in the form of a house…



House completion

Hey guys,  What a day it was, not only did we finish a house for a family of 5 but also a chicken and duck coop too. It took a lot of hammering and sawing in some pretty crazy heat but we completed it all before lunch.  We headed back to the school for lunch…



Chickeny friends

Hey folks,  Sorry I haven’t been up to date this week, I’ve had a few minor technological issues but I’m pretty sure I’m on top of them now.  Over the past 48 hours, we’ve finished the walls the roof, the floor, put the windows on, built a door and even started a little chicken and…

Bumper cars

Hi from all the way in Siem Reap. Today we went on with rendering, as well as painting all the timber to protect it from termites and the weather and make it long lasting. We also started a little front part to the house, a bit like a porch, and as always we still had…



A snakey ending

Hey hey it’s Derm again. Today we finished the roof, did heaps and heaps and heaps of rendering which meant a ridiculous amount of cement mixing but gee wizz wowee did we enjoy it.  We also started another part of the roof which meant a lot of bamboo cutting and hammering of tin 🙂  Thats…



Happy Birthday Jamie :)

Happy birthday Jamie. Today was very similar to yesterday, because we achieved absolute greatness once again.
