    18 kilometres from chiang mai centre. 6 kilometres from both Doi Sakhet and Sang Kampheng (North and South).

    25 minute commute to work.

    feels like te middle of nowhere tough, which is nice.

    Around B1,300 per sq. wa then. That sounds pretty good. Can't compare directly with moo-baan prices obviously but just goes to show how much of a profit they make on the land - ours would've paid around the same and we end up paying B10,000 per sq. wa.

    Have you included items like faucets, ceiling fans, any special lighting, kitchen and bathroom cabinets ...

    I'll bet the builder considers all these things extras.

    104 sq m is slightly larger than my living room.

    I think a million baht per rai is too expensive in Chiang Mai.

    Me too.

    I have been quoted 500,000 Baht for 3 rai not too far from Noony's place, but I think between 300k & 400k Baht is more reasonable.

    can't compare at all.

    the moo bahn we have our house on now is around the 9,000 baht a dalang wah range.

    Kinda depends where it is though. Clearly you can get significantly cheaper as CMN has done but the closer to town you get the more the prices go up.

    A million baht a rai is not bad at all for that location.

    saw some scrubland land in the city the other day at 30,000 a dalang wah.

    I like the pic of the house u are copying, lots of angles and glass, nice.
    & comfortable.

    We did a similar thing with our house in paying a fixed amount to the boss for labour, and let him get on with who & how many helpers he employs. It worked out OK.

    Our mistake was buying tools:-

    Metal cutter
    tile cutter
    saws
    T square
    Spirit level
    buckets
    ladders
    spades ..sorry shovels
    hammers, screwdrivers, chisels and drill
    exteriior cosmetic cladding (excess)
    paint and brushes ( diito)

    all the above disappeared upon conclusion apart from one folding ladder which is borrowed extensively even to this day.

    Even the architects plans were sold on.

    Are you bothering with guttering?

    Really? Even Beer Laos?

    I'm not so sure being entertained by local 'entertainment specialists' is such a good idea though.

    Ricefields on our side of town cost about B320-350K per rai; these are just ricefields so you need to add lots of earth to get them a bit elevated. If next to a road the land costs more too; if next to a busier road and there is potential for business, even more.
    I have reported your post

    lom wants pictures so i have some pics that my wife snapped this afternoon.

    those metal things are now upright in the ground.



    I was quite shocked to see a cement mixer on site.
    i watched my entire moo bahn be built without ever seeing one of these.
