The wet weather has delayed some contractors lately including the door man, but the blind men arrived and started work.
Had to go and get the correct screws as they weren't told it was a steel frame house as the frame is directly around the window. Any way all worked out now. The steel frame has provided a very strong attachment.
We have chosen a mixture of a pull down blind and the hanging strip type as in the photos. The material for these blind styles allow you to look outside but you cannot look in.
To be fitted later, the kitchen will have a mahogany timber slat venetian blind style. Have to wait 30 days for these to be fabricated along with the different colour for the hanging blinds on the 4 sliding doors around the pool deck.

GF is very pleased with the choice we made on my last visit and likes the installation so far.
Total cost for all window and door blinds with fitting is 45,000 bht

Looks like a slow day again on UM so you can watch my concrete dry. :D
GF has decided to extend the apron around the house and dog shelter.

Next project for her is the front fence and electric gate system. Haven't looked in town or BKK yet for a supplier of the auto gate. Do the gate motors have the battery backup in case of power failure, auto close timer when gate may have been forgotten to be closed, electric eye for auto open on exit? etc etc. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Made a reasonably big stuff up ages ago on the tiles for the pool surround so will replace them as another project for her. They are a bit slippery and will replace with a more non slip tile along with similar tiles for the stair landings.

Any way here's the drying concrete.
Oh I think it was 30,000 for concrete and 10,000 for the guys.

And the dogs swimming in the dam. :lol:

Have a happy day.
