My husband, a tireless designer on the site, just got a great inspiration and is building now a fishpond around the swimming pool and the Bale Bengong.
No machines, only my husband as site constructor, many great manpower and tools.
A few more days and we will hopefully have our first swim in our spring water swimming pool.

The roof of Villa Manuk Bambu is nearly thatched
The stone work for our natural swimming pool is going on well. Thanks our permaculture teacher Norm we try to make the edges of the pool a kind of "round" that the natural flow of the water works better and the pool will be more easy to clean.
And finally a foto from our "Bale Bengong" - Pavilion next to the pool.
