Waiting for the mudbricks

Today we finished the last steps before we can start tomorrow with the first mudbricklane. As mortar we will us the same mixture like for the mudbricks. 50% clay, 20% cutted straw, 15% sand and 20% rice-husk. Onkeo and I couldn’t hide our joy after work today, when we noticed tomorrow we finally start.


This is what the building-site looks like now. The frames on the left hold a cement wall, I thought what is necessary for the shower, where mud should impossible be to use. As it goes in Laos, Wong, a experienced lao builder told me that we easily could have taken mudbricks if we had put tiles on the inside afterwards. Boo pen njang, bast scho, doesn’t matter. This time it’s Jenny’s turn to dance on the wall.
