Smile Pompei build in China

Well, I have finally, after 2 years in the waiting, begun my build in Shunyi, Beijing, China
A 42" Pompei.
The slab foundation is being done now by some locals but once that is done the rest will be all me, woo hoo!
Took a huge amount of talk to get my point across as to how I wanted the foundation done. They just wanted to dig, about half the depth I asked for and pour. No crushed stone, no rebar. Oh, the headaches it took to get them to listen. But finally it's being done.

All the best with your build. The foundation work sounds like it was a challenge but it seems that you have got things happening your way. Every location has its own particular challenges.

I look forward to following your progress.

Cheers ............. Steve
