Rain, Rain but Still Steady Progress on our Glamping Site
So the rain came a little earlier than we had expected. Fortunately it wasn’t the thunderous downpours that we do occasionally get at the time of year. Instead it was more London style rain: consistent, annoying but generally harmless.
We did lose a few days but we feel we were so far ahead that it makes no difference. Also with the present covid situation, which is pretty bad but not yet disastrous, we probably couldn’t make a Oct 1 opening anyway. Most likely it will be Nov 1 instead.
Glamping Decks Arising from the Ground
Mainly this video looks at how we are building our decks. We would loved to have built wood decks but the conditions here are just not right. Our domes will sit over our rice fields which we deliberately flood during the growing season. This plus heavy rain, strong sun and the proximity of termites make this using wood and maintaining wood difficult.
So we have decided to build strong concrete decks that will last 100+ years if needed. There is a video that takes you through the process below.
So far though our state is still calm, within budget and progressing at the right speed.
