Boutel Puchong - Building a Gabion Wall Villa

Our first landed house and it is the house I have been living for 10 years.  It is now available for you to rent & enjoy for a memorable vacation stay.  Everything that I wanted to do when I was living in, I have done them now: Koi pond, Rock wall villa, Treehouse, Sand Pit, Pool, Roof top space, Japanese Ofuro bathtub & more.

It was supposed to be a 1-2 months long project, which dragged to almost 6 months.  Many mistakes were done, mainly I should have sub'ed the project out rather than hiring workers to do it.  Again, working with foreign labours is dangerous, they would simply stop work without notice.  I have had 2 groups that ran away, causing for the delay.  So, next time, I will break the project down to smaller sub projects that I then sub out.  It will make cost control easier, and time management more manageable.  Also, almost all workers you talked to will tell you that they know how to do the work you want.  I wanted to do a rock wall(gabion wall) room, and I have showed them the pictures, in the end, they have never done it, and I had to teach them how to do it.  Be reminded that I have never done it myself, I have seen people done it, and was told how to do it, but never actually done it.  I actually tried to do it in the failed project in Penang, but I couldn't get it erected.  Had to get someone to help, but I was away when they were building the wall, so I didn't actually get to see how it was built.




This wall took 2-3 months to construct.  Each day, one can only lay about 30-50 rocks.  I have done few mistakes, mainly I was trying to find perfect fit, and it was time consuming.  The easier way is to lay cement on top of the rock before laying another rock on top.  The layer of cement will make the seam look better and you don't need close to perfect match, plus the cement would close the holes between rocks.  Now, I am left with thousands of holes, and during heavy rain, water seeps in.

The hardest part of constructing the wall is the edges.  It is not easy to find rocks that are square on one side, and it is even harder to stack them up nicely.  You should find a plank & do water level with them.  I didn't, and the edges are all crooked.  Even the wall is wavy.  Nonetheless, I am happy with the end result.  I am sure the next wall I build will be a better one.

  1. The local economy, type of construction, cost per square foot, and competing estimates are critical factors when considering construction building costs. corrosive cabinet

  2. I've been reluctant in purchasing this blank ATM card i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from America Express Hackers & we both confirmed it if it really works. Truly, the card worked & without delay i gave it a try also. Ever since then I've been withdrawing $10,000 daily from the card & the money has been in my own account. Am glad i gave it a try at last & this card has really changed my life financially without getting caught, its real & truly works and made me rich!! Instead of getting a loan, i will advise you get this blank ATM card now!! This Carmella Raymond citizen of United States. Contact the hackers via Email: [ Americaexpresscard@hotmail.com ] or Text only via cell number: +1 (518) 460-6400 for more info.

  3. Testimony of financial breakthrough from GOD through the help of Funding Circle Loan INC. (fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622)...

    Hi I'am Evelyn Russell resident at 808 NE 19th St Oklahoma City, I am a single mother blessed with 2 daughters. For a while now I have been searching for a genuine loan lender who could help me with a loan as I no longer have a job, all I got were hoodlums who made me trust them and at the end they took my money without giving me any loan, my hope was lost, I got confused and frustrated, it became difficult for my family to feed with a good meal, I never wanted to have anything to do with any loan lending companies on the internet again. Not until I met a Godsent loan lender that changed my life and that of my family Through the help of a fellowship member "a lender with the fear of God in him Mr JASON RAYMOND, he was the man God sent to elevate my family from suffering. At first I thought it wasn’t going to be possible due to my previous experience until I received my loan worth $135,000.00 USD in less then 24hours. So my advise to anyone out there genuinely in need of a loan is to contact Funding Circle Loan INC through this official email:- fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 and be financial lifted.

  6. These might be leased "as seems to be", with the guests getting the keys toward the beginning of the trip and returning them toward the end, either with or without a cleaning or security store. On the other hand, the villa may have its own staff, for the most part living off property however accessible all through your stay to deal with cleaning, clothing, cooking or nearby visits and so forth.centerville iowa hotels

  9. The villa should likewise offer a lot of security, likely being encompassed by trees and other normal limits so you can genuinely feel loose on your get-away without the commotion of the outside world aggravating you, or feeling like you're being kept an eye on.
