    Here's another Thai teakwood house, this one is an old house that has been bought for the wood and is now being rebuilt near Pattaya, only trouble is is that it is right close to Sukhumvit Road so they will have traffic noise problems, next door to it is the owners garden center, she doesn't know when it will be finished as she is a bit skint at the moment.



    Can't really see it in this picture but the doors are really nice and have carvings on them.



    A bit closer to the doors.



    A couple more walls and some of the fancy roof stuff to go up.

    Something like this would be worth buying for the wood, ok it's bloody ugly but you only need a saw to redesign it

    It's a nice house alright, but it will likely cost a packet around here.
    You're far better buying a couple of old teak houses from up north, Chiang Rai to Phrae area, having them renovated up there than transported down. I think wooden houses around Pattaya are well over priced, same around Udon actually.

    Plans changed, again. We have to look for something else. A phone call yesterday told us that the lady offering the land to us had sold to her FiL.
    Sad though, as the land once was my wifes grandfathers, and he traded it for a few sacks of rice when everythihg went wrong and the family was hungry.

    true DD

    A lot of the old wood houses are quite ugly, just built by themselves without much thought about appearance etc

    but they often have really nice wood, thick teak planks, hard wood beams

    1 million or 100 million, your being a bit vague, to buy the wood is like real cheap, but to build a luxury mansion from several of these isn't, your question is too vague.

    This teak wood house is nice, they are making them down off of Soi Khao Talo, they have a few different designs, only got a picture of this one as you know they think you are stealing their special designs that nobody else could think of.

    If you was to purchase one of these small teak houses and have them put up just for a few years can you just take them down and move them when you want? I have a great plot of land but no house at the moment but i would like something small and stylish just for now on the land.

    I have just bought a nice old rice barn. It is similar to a house except it has no stairs (they think that fools the rats). Very cute, 6 big posts, cost B10,000 and another B10,000 to move and rebuild to similar specs. I will need some new wood to replace old, useless bits though.

    you can do that with any wooden house, but the rebuild can vary depending on the standard you want.
    I have reported your post

    no pictures yet, just a heap of wood

    I will post when up and finished

    as for cheap, I thought it was OK. Our builder knew we had rice and needed a barn, so he mentioned a neighbour wanted to sell one

    it is quite high (3 metres) so I will use the underneath as a workshop for wood

    Is that supposed to be a question or a statement?

    as it has a question mark, that is self evident Marmite

    but does it mean "upcountry teak", or was he upcountry observing the teak?

    whatever, yes, teak is insect-proof except for the wood just beneath the bark

    Except that the rest of the sentence is definitely a statement.

    you have to make allowances Marmite; I think we are lucky there was a question mark and teak was spelt correctly
