    Yep, they have probably sold the same house to 15 different people, taken 2 million deposit from each and are now dismantling the evidence.

    Hi Aquaman,

    Great house a page or so back!

    I tried sending you a pm, but as I'm a newbie, I wasn't allowed. So rather than post 15 pieces of junk to get to the required level, I thought I'd ask a question or two here if that's okay?

    I guess others might have the answers?

    Any idea where I could get more information about such places? Are there other designs - 3-bed for example? Do they or similar companies have websites? If not, is there anywhere I could visit? When next in LOS, I will be around the Korat area (with a trip to Hua Hin thrown in). But I could change my plans.

    Whats the life-span of such a house?

    Now this will make me seem real dumb, but no mention was made of a kitchen or bathroom! You must have them, but are they in the main house?

    Sorry for so many questions but I'm keen to learn more and need some help.

    Many thanks.

    There are a few companies near Phrae. i think the district is called den chai, its on the road up to chaing mai. ive seen a few companies in ayuthia as well. you can design anything you want. i'm not sure about websites. as for the kitchen and bathroom we built them on the ground floor, not really attached to the house. just walk down the trap door stairs and there is the kitchen and bathroom. it woul dbe nice to have a toilet up top here but didnt feel like doing it. good luck.

    caller, you dont need to buy a ready made house. That is the nmost expensive way to do it

    I bought an old house, just for the wood, not the design. I then had it transported to my land. I used an architect to draw up our plans, and to get planning permission. Then we found some builders who followed the plans, and any changes we wanted

    in the end, we had a nice big wooden house, bath and kitchen upstairs at the back in a concrete part

    easy peasy...sort of
    I have reported your post

    That is the hard bit. The buggers usually build what they want not want you wanted. f you can find a quality builder then yes your way is better.

    At least the other way to can actually see exactly what you are getting before you start.

    Mine was built without any delays. took them about 4 weeks from crew and wood stepping foot on our land till they shoved off.

    I looked at buying a house made of wood then tearing it down and doing it that way. i just havent seen a nice looking house in the area so i figured the local labor was used to putting up concrete places.

    yes, we were lucky with good builders, and my wife was a good project manager

    builders do tend to try to build what they are used to, so if you have any non-standard ideas, they need to be discussed and explained until the builders can feel OK about them. They actually like to do things differently, it makes their day when they finish something good and can show their friends

    Thanks - that link is saved - even though I had to delete it from my reply to enable me to, well, reply! I think I'm up to 10 now, so no more of that.

    Pattaya Thai Teak Wood House

    Well it seems this thread has now come to an end and the Teak house is no more, think it took them less than a week to take the whole thing down, have to goto the beginning of the thread to see when they started.

    All in tiny little bits now.



    The roof trim.



    Joists.



    Main supporting beam.



    Roof fascia.

    Easy enough; they changed their minds, pretty much in the same way a 6 year old kid starts building something from lego blocks, then when it's almost done thinks "naaaaaaaaaaaah" and goes on to play somewhere else.

    And... this is a little bit of food for thought actually: If you build a nice teak home and go on holiday for a week, you may come back to find just the concrete slab on the ground.

    Well I found another one that is just about finished, this one is up for sale and can be moved to your lovely plot of land, this is on Sukhumvit going from Pattaya to Sattahip on the left hand side.

    The front of the house.



    The back and one side.



    The main room.



    One of the bedrooms.
