Hi Folks

Well after 2 + years and getting side tracked by building a pool and undertaking some rather intense hard landscaping I will soon be in a position to commence the WFO block work. The pool has taken the position of the existing WFO and the wife got her way with the pool…so now it’s my turn.

I will be utilising a solid existing iron rock as a foundation and like the other walls I have built with my wife they will have 12mm starter bars drilled down 400mm with 200mm center’s.

We have had some good practice with the block work (we’ve laid about 230 bricks so far) and my wife has laid a good portion of them. Im lucky to have her support with this monster.

The side walls will also double as a retaining wall. The wall will be waterproofed with 300mm of blue metal 10mm and 100mm ag pipe, geotech etc. we have had a lot of rain and it’s given us the ability to see where the water comes from and where it goes to. Although wicking is a concern I believe if I can spend the time waterproofing it will be ok!

All materials so far have been carried up a steep driveway with buckets…so needless to say we are quite fatigued but with the cooler weather upon us I should be able to gain some momentum. We have been doing 12 hours days with the walls and pool and the weather has been against us since the beginning 2 years ago.

Once started I hope to have the foundations and wall done fairly quickly…the WFO on the other hand may be another story. This project has sucked up all of our money so we need to complete projects as we can afford them.

Here are some pictures showing the cabana and WFO area.

Any body know how to place the pictures in your post instead of thumbnails?

Don't know about the rest but I prefer to see the pictures in the content of the post.

Cheers Bert

After you attach the pictures, click the paperclip icon again. You'll see each of the files you uploaded there. If you click the file name, it will insert the picture into the text of the post wherever your cursor is.

I use photobucket. As long as you size your pics, when you snap them or before you post them to photobucket, you can use their direct link.
Enter that link to the FB's Insert image icon. Note: If the pics are to large, they will run off of the page.
Hope this helps .

I am sure that it would. You just need to size them before hand. Or use Picassa's eiting software. Picassa uses flickr (I think) for photo editing. I was just too slow in learning this step .

Hi Bert,

I used Picassa for my photo album. Looking forward to seeing you build.
