    Around 10,000 Baht for the model/size in the picture.
    Motor not included, that is another 4000 Baht.

    Footings, columns and beams are what you'll see them do now and coming weeks. That is a footing..

    what are the upright metal contraptions for?

    is it some sort of re-bar?

    Reinforcement for the concrete columns.
    The guy with the hat is holding what is the beginning of a wooden box for making columns.
    The metal will be inside the box.

    Are you sure it's a shovel and not a spade?

    I'm not sure if you mentioned it before, but how long is it expected to take?

    Good pics. Is it a new camera or a steady hand now that you don't drink?

    they say 3 months maximum.
    I'm not overly bothered so long as it doesn't turn into a buadhai saga.

    thank you.
    same machine.
    I think the light seems right for pic taking up there especially when my wife is holding the camera.

    3 months and 1 million?

    I say 7 months and 1.4 million

    Don't mean to be negative, but this seems about right for other similar projects in Thailand. They never factor in time and money for problems, mistakes, extras...

    Good luck though and if you can do it as expected I will give you and your wife a gold star.

    it will end up being more than a million for sure.
    hopefully not a great deal more, just a bit more.

    best thing is that the builders are very local, all from the little village we are moving to.

    That thread of thetyim's neighbours house gave me hope.

    Completed in 2 months and under budget.

    I reckon they will try and get it finished for SongKran.

    Have you planned a fitted kitchen?

    they are saying before songkraan, yes.
    the kitchen area is quite small, but big enough for cooking.

    not sure what to do with it yet.

    Felinfoel maybe?

    Certainly would be feeling foul after a good session on that!

    Out of interest, assume that you have electricity to the plot, but what about water, have you a mains supply or do you have a well?

    Nice cement mixer but take note! It might be cheaper to mix your own cement but could in the long run be really expensive. If the boys get the cement, sand, gravel ratios wrong in your columns and beams you are going to have big problems. I strongly suggest you look into premix from Siam Cement or ??.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
