    G'day,

    I have just uploaded a couple of new albums to our Google Picasa-based photolog covering the following:

    Ferrocement Works - (https://picasaweb.google.com.au/permaculture.biz/FerrocementWorks) - 209 images of various Ferrocement works including buildings, gardens and importantly step by steps of the 4 water tanks (15,000-60,000 litre) we constructed at our project in Viet Nam. I have annotated all of these photos to describe the technical details as required.
    Design Templates - (https://picasaweb.google.com.au/permaculture.biz/DesignTemplates) - 38 different MapInfo generated design templates of tree layouts - I have to dig through the design base to get more of these out.
    Updated Permaculture Design Portfolio - (https://picasaweb.google.com.au/permaculture.biz/PermacultureDesignPortfolio) - this is a work in progress as I have to convert literally many hundreds of digital (and when I get home hand-draughted) plans into image files - I have found another 20 odd designs in a spare moment and put these up for viewing. I have to also annotate all of these - again when I get a spare moment.

    We have a few more albums to come from our trip to Permaculture sites in Austria (Sepp's Huntsburger, Holzer and Brunner), Italy and here in Ireland. I am also going thru all of our Viet Nam project files (2004-2007+) and intend on getting them up soon.

    Thanks,

    Outstanding work Daz...I've only been able to check out the ferrocement partially so far (dial-up blues :lol:), but both the work itself and the documentation is terrific - thanks as always for sharing these things with us.

    One quick question if you get time...in your opinion, how long does the curing time take on the tanks in these humid climates before you can begin filling them? I've heard a wide range of different answers on this question, so I'd be very interested to hear yours.

    G'day,

    Thanks for the post. When I talked to my old tank builder he said that you can fill the tanks more or less straight away. From all of the reading I did before I built my first tank I found that the general opinion was that it takes around 28 days for the 'primary' curing to occur. I can't recall how long 'full' curing takes - a look at the https://www.fao.orgwebsite on cement and concreting will help there. We did have on tank that filled 5 days after being completed - it is looking really good with no cracks or other problems - so I guess that proves my old builder to be correct.

    Sorry to be so sketchy - quite travel-lagged right now - if I have any more to I'll get back to you.

    Thanks,

    Daz

    Thanks for the update, Daz :)

    It's always a great pleasure to view your images. I trust you are capturing many more as we write? Looking forward to seeing them and catching up with you one day soon upon your return. May you and your family stay safe, well and happy for the remainder of the trip.

    Hooroo, Mark.

    G'day,

    Of course we are going crazy taking photos all over the place - that was a big part of this journey - to catalogue it. Keep an eye on it - now we back in the US we have access to their fantastic fast internet so I am updating the photolog all of the time - we have just added the trips to the "3 Sepp's" as I call them of Austria - when Joe Polaischer is there it is the "4 Sepp's". The"3 Sepp's" are Huntsberger, Holzer and Brunner. All of whose properties we visited and took a gazillion photos of - now up for viewing. We have also just added a new MapInfo Manual for those wanting to create their own MapInfo plans - its at https://picasaweb.google.com/permaculture.biz/MapInfoManual

    Keep watching....

    Hooroo,

    Daz
