Param's Shop under Construction In Bangalore, India
We do things a little bit differently here vis-a-vis the West... the materials we use, the labor we employ and the techniques we adopt to construct are definitely low-tech, though cost-effective and quick!
On the other hand, in India, we adopt a very scientific and time-tested building planning technique called "Vastu" - centuries old, it clearly dictates ventilation, building orientation, position of equipment and even where the 'boss' of the setup should sit!
Watch as my 1200 sq ft space takes shape, ground-up. Project start date 7th November 2011... hoping to complete in 2 months. Will post more pics as the build goes on...wish me luck, folks!
