I can finally start with the long overdue stage 2. Start laying bricks today. I am excited.

Koi shop and selling ponds:

More Paul
Ja jy moet net vir my draai plek maak daar langs die gebou.
Gaan goed hier en die winter is ook regtig hier in die Boesmanland die jaar.
Groete.

Hi Paul,

Dit lyk nou sommer baie goed man ek hou van die mooi berg in die agtergrond. Julle moet net daai lelike drade laat verwyder.

Baie sterkte en voorspoed met die projek. Hoop dit sal jou passie vir koi bevredig.

Rain finally subsided, only a rainbow left.

Underestimated the foundations and slab. 40 cu of sand and stone & 160 bags of cement gone, and you can't even see much progress. Walls can start tomorrow.

Selling ponds have a good foundation, slab of 150 mm and plenty of iron mesh. Hope that is good enough in view of the fact that it is an above ground pond. 20 000 liter plus 3 500 liter three chamber up/down gravitation filter. Will do bakkie showers above each section, flowing directly into each section.

First phase:

Plaster, paint, and slate sealing and I am done with the first phase. Took a bit longer than I thought, but I did it myself with one bricklayer.



Septic tank:





Pond hydroseal on the walls (second coat still to come)
