Interesting....how did you learn so much about building methods over there?

Please keep it coming - I enjoy reading stuff like this.

Youtube (And I worked in the manufacturing of OSB, and then became involved with quality control and customer claims.I had to know why and how the product failed - was it the product or the contractor?, so I had to know the basics of construction)
Water and wood are not friends, but if you do it right, it will last a lifetime. The plywood below my "old" front door have been below ground level for 22years but looks almost brand new.

Floor joists are up. Going to do the floor this afternoon. It is overcast right now. Hopefully it can get done before it rains.

Onbetroubaar en duur. Hier is moer baie werk vir eerlike betroubare hardwerkende mense. Maar daai kombenasie is bitter skaars.
Maar ek hardloop vinnig uit tyd en talent uit. Sal een van die dae n kontrakteur moet kry om die projek oor te neem

Sub  :ricky: Love your work  :thumleft: I'm fascinated with these build threads, on both bikes and houses. Interesting to see how much extra work goes into prepping a house for snow & frost, it must add a huge amount to build costs. Makes me realize how fortunate we are in SA, and how badly we get ripped off for simple build methods.
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

If you're dumb you gotta be tough !!!
