    Gulf Air

    Same, no drinks on board is a NONO for me.
  3. They ARE a pain for most of them, yes. Including their loud mouthed women....
  4. Hahaha, no damage in South Bali.
  5. The thing just blew a few hours ago.... Ash cloud drifting West to Java (passing above the jungle house..but I didn't tell the Miss) Bali airport still operating, just heard a flight take off. Allah be with us ! JD for prayers....
  6. Believe it or not, Blimbingzari (Banyuwangi) airport was closed as well as Jember ! Anyway , going by road on.Tuesday ! Exactly !
  7. A site where one can watch the evolution of the ash cloud is the Darwin Volcanish Ash Advisory http://www.bom.gov.au/info/vaac/advisories.shtml Select "AGUNG" and see the expected evolution. Time is Zulu time. Volcano location is indicated, airport is located near the tip on the South, about 60 km from the airport. Airport closure all depends on the winds.

    Looking For A Roofer

    That was the original roof when the house was build by the Missus mom many moons ago, and with limited resources I suppose at the time. The rebuild.is in one of my previous building report

    Looking For A Roofer

    I noticed that here in Indo they are also switching to the metallic structure. Call me old dynosaure, but I like it the traditionnal wood way. I dont really agree with the 2 sections needing to be separate. IMO (but I am not a pro) the important is the slope. If the angle of the upper roof is higher than the one of the lower roof (usually an extension or covered terasse) the water from the upper part arrive at a higher velocity then what it can achieve on the lower (less angled) roof. So it creats a slown down of the flow, and likely an overflow on the junction of the tiles. Roof inclinations in France are reglementated according to the region and its climat. Hence very steep angles in the mountain (to avoid snow accumulation) and steeper angles in the regions with important rains than in"dry" regions. And of cause the gutters and drains need to be calculated to be able to absorb the max rainfall (mm/h per sq m translated in l/min) of the region. Hence it always surprises me they make flat roofs in places with a high rain monsoon season .

    Looking For A Roofer

    Yep mate. This was what we found after "in depth" inspection. Look at the right of the parabola antenna. Only one solution, redo the whole thing.

    Looking For A Roofer

    Yes to all the above. The different angle junction between 2 roof sections will not help. Clean them would already help.to improve the water flow, and allow to inspect which ones are broken. Did you had a look under the tiles at the wood structure ? I had a major issue with this at the jungle house.

    Building a house in Thailand

    With some books, and being a bit older 10 to 15 days in the jungle is doable. Knowing I have my area, and my interaction with family and locals is minimal. Food for 2 weeks is easy to bring over, but still a very limited range of menus. And no way I will eat the local "stuff". Always very happy to be back on the sea in Bali with proper civilization. Maybe will start a chapter.on my thread on this subject... Because Bali being a island, live will tend to become boring here pretty fast as well.

    Yeah, yeah, I know.... you're not wrong. One law for all.. Agreed. But its the way its done that bothers me a bit. A bit delicate to explain in details and publicly.

    Building a house in Thailand

    Never say never.... A year ago I had no idea that retirement and doing sweet F.A. could be enjoyable. ..... Like today our main question was which restaurant we would have lunch. Tonight the Miss cooked a curry (yes, I should check if there isn't a Brit in her background somewhere...) and old Papa/Mama are of to bed.

    Guys, your behaviour with Matthy is not really nice.... Should I dig up some post where he was congratulated on his generosity etc....? Ok, he is a pain after a few curries, but sure doesnt deserve the actual treatment. Give him some slack plse. Note this post is nice,.polite and without any personal attacks... Follow Allah, he'll show you the light....

    Exactly.... now just check the main users of the previous Shit Box and ban the lot. Problem solved. Because anybody posting in lenght in there had a mental problem and shouldn't be on a this forum to start with. Remembed, the idea was to build a community.....well ....

    Building a house in Thailand

    Do it as I mentionned, if the builder doesn't agree you got your answer.... Another way to limit the risk is to pay yourself for all major material to the material supplier. Avoids that your builder having reached his credit limit with a supplier, cant buy anything anymore before paying for the previous invoices he ran up. Again, he will use your downpayment to pay part of his outstanding credit, and use the new credit availability to buy your material etc... Again, that was in France. In the Wild East, its not gonna be easier in general.

    Hahaha, you gave yourself away , no ? Having the last word, opinion, decision etc....on everything and in every thread. At the end you will have it, as there will be only 2 or 3 people posting anymore... BTW, how many genuine new members did we attract on the past 2 months ? Good job !

    Building a house in Thailand

    Thats how I organized the extension / renovation of my house in France 15 years ago. 4 lots (walls / roof / etc...) and each lot payable in 3 parts (start / half way / completion). An effective way to never have too much money committed. I was overseas, so the smart builder tried to play smart and "set up" some pics...Too bad for him I had my neighbour in the circuit to double pic every stage. Ended up when I came back with an 3rd party expertise, the builder given the choice to pay back what he cheated or being slung in court. Got what I wanted, but a bloody pain it was.. They all do what we call "cavalry" meaning using the down payment of your new project to complete the previous one. If things go South as in any Ponzi scheme, the last one is left to hold the bag.
