Bann Nah 36: Retrospective

My wife Thiphawan remarked the other day that in a few months we will have been in building mode, at Bann Nah, for two years. I laughed, because to me, we’re already pushing three. She’s counting from when work began on the structure. I count from the time we donated and sold land to the temple, for the building of the temple chedi (stuppa), and our decision to build a new “shack” out in the middle of the rice fields that were left (9 rai).

Here’s what the original lower part of 17 rai looked like, purchased for the family to rice farm on, back in 2000:
