M0Y HOMESCHOOLING JOURNAL

Skinning the rubber tree logs really took time and in order to finish all of them, everybody had to sleep late last night. What the hell these rubber tree logs were doing in this house project? Yes..We are going to build a
creative house that use these rubber logs as the material of the wall.
Lets view some of the sample of the house:
|Hundred percent of cord wood wall. It seemed that the cost of building the house was not that high. We have lots of good wood in Malaysia. For this cordhouse house, we do not need a strong wood like Jati, Meranti or so on.|
|How creative !! This is a good way to keep your firewood in front of your house so that it doesn't look messy.|
Yes, that's it. As I had mentioned before, we had changed our plan from building a simple house to a creative modern house. How about our challenge building the house in 30 days? Well...we kept on working to achieve it.
|A pile of clean rubber tree logs were piled at one corner of the site project.|
|Its time to open the form works of the pillars.|
|All the pillars were perfectly done.|
|My brother was coating the pillars with the fine wire (dawai mata punai). The next stage was to make a wall of the house. This fine wire would grip the cement perfectly.|
|I was really expert in mixing cement.|
|Oops...It wasn't that easy. I used all my strength to start the machine.|

|Early in the morning, we started with the wall. Hopefully the weather would be fine.|
|Still working with the wall. Every bricks must be really straight and perpendicular to the pillar.|
|You must be very careful and tidy when arranged the bricks together.|
|Half way to finish the wall.|
|Wow!! Really lots of them. We could make a table and chair set for our garden.|

|On top of all....unity was very important. Never missed our routine!!|
|Everybody was so focused when the manager director gave orders of the day.|
|I was a cement boy. Grinding it, mixing it and apply it were my specialty.|
|Made a hole for a toilet pipe.|
|Still with the wall. We would take quite a long time with the wall.|
|What he was doing? O..o..o he tried to estimate the length of bath tub. I loved spending my time in bath tub while listening to music.|
