    Building in Korat

    First of all, please bear over with me for misspelling or insufficient English since this is not my native languages. My Norwegian is pretty good but you would not understand much, I guess.
    The house is to be built in my wifeís village in Korat called Moo Baan Ban Na in Ampeur Ban Luam. My wife has own this lot for ages. She had a wall put up and filled the premises with truckloads of dirt to elevate the land.

    The lot is half a rai or 800 sq m. An architect in Korat made the drawings. After consulting the local fortune teller they agreed that the 21 of July would be a nice day to start building. The last few weeks preparation and foundation work have been carried out. A local company is doing the construction. (I donít have the name yet)

    The contact is of 2, 6 million Bath and that is without a wall around the house. We will have a wall and will ask the builder in due time.


    How do I insert an image from my computer here?

    you can't.

    you have to host it either with an image host like photobucket or open a gallery on teak door, here http://teakdoor.com/Gallery/index.php

    3D version

    This is what we hope it would look like. The Porche is not part of the plans.

    the majority of people are on 1,200 wide monitors, ie screen resolutions, any bigger and you stretch the page for them.

    Stating of piling

    The piling started 13.07.08 or July 13 if you like and it took only 1,5 days to hammer down 80 piles. They are 6 meter long and are the base plate for the columns that carries the house.









    A pile

    Foundation work

    The piles are driven 1,5 meter into the ground.





    It was really hard work to excavate the wells for the columns. The ground is hard as concrete since it has been curing for years. It was 5 days hard labor for 8 people to dig out. 8 hours a day for 5 days is in that heat is fatigues.

    The reinforcement cages are prefabricated.

    don't worry Panthip, your English is probably better than many of the native English speakers here!


    After consulting the local fortune teller they agreed that the 21 of July would be a nice day to start building
    and good luck with your build...tomorrow!!!

    The official start date 21.07.08



    Finally the day is here. The ceremony with the monks started at 09:00. The monks walked around the premises while giving blessings. They also lay down a rope for good luck and to prevent Phi-Pop from entering. Letís hope it works.



    It hard work to be a monk it looks like. This gang had to take a break. The oldest monk is my wives uncle, lung Pra. The ceremony is done and the food is eaten.




    There are 20 of these holes.



    The grid bars are placed over the piles.



    The reinforcing cages are lifted in.





    There were lots of spectators and I bet a lot of ďgoodĒ advice



    Final the reinforcement for the columns is in place.



    The first cages are in place decorated with ribbon, palm leafs, sugarcane and what looks like a fish pot. They symbolize happiness and good fortune. 99 Bath in coins were also thrown into the well for good luck.






    Here is my wifeís brother, khun Deng who will supervise the building for us.



    Here is Kuhn Tep married to my wives sister. He will do daily inspections and hopefully supply some pictures.




    The builder is in the middle. He runs several projects around Thailand.




    There is nothing wrong to say about the working clothes. I wonder how he looks when he goes home.




    Here is the sign at the building site.
    All I got today folks.

    ^ until you have 1000 posts it will be a random place

    good work on the thread - it is always interesting to see these building photo threads

    any info on pricing ( like the piledriving ) is helpful also

    Nice one Panthip, I made it here eventually. I like the position of the road, making for a good aspect. Your plans look good, a bit more palacial than mine. I hope you save some money to get a decent garden going. This has the makings of a very good thread. Keep the pictures coming and the very best of luck with your project.
