    One could be a door? Also as long as the bottoms are at the same height on windows it makes a nice feature.

    They aren't, it just looks like that

    the doors are different frames, the room door is a normal one,the bathroom door has a window over the top (you can just see the dividing frame); they are the same size doors
    I have reported your post

    Yeah, arround that. But I think they are going to get cheaper. A little bit like the first USB Stick.

    That looks a lot of fun Herman, but we will stick with old fashioned cabling

    our electrician is putting in the 5 points at B200 each, to the point outside

    the cable company can just come and connect when we want

    unfortunately, they say that there are no other users down our soi, so they want to charge B7000 for cabling; we are hoping that it will be set against our rental costs, so we will start with a credit of the B7000

    up to the managers, wait and see

    Strange deal, looks like they are gonna pull a pencil from you.

    I've had to pay for the last 60 meters of the cable run and that was 540Baht.
    Are you living 750 m away from the connection point?

    Ok here are some more pics of the progress

    They are rendering the outside, and have started the inside

    The front of the house, with arches copied from a nearby wat

    you can see the pool work is now in progress too



    The top arch is a balcony for a guest room, the bottom one leads into the open courtyard room






    This shows a little of the rendering detail, they are doing a nice job





    more rendering and another view of the pool (on top) under construction

    the rendering really pulls the house together, it now has a nice feel




    another view of the pool



    Some pics of the inside work; the Moongate. This still needs the detail edging to make it look good...could be made a little rounder too




    The main bedroom, showing the two balcony doors/windows





    from that bedroom, the arch into the dressing room and bathroom

    some more inside pics

    this is the second floor landing, showing the two big windows looking out to the courtyard




    and one of the wheel windows; needs a clean but looks neat





    inside the courtyard room looking out

    I think this will be a cool room




    a view from the soi, the poor mango has been savagely cut back so not much fruit this year


    The roof has been finished and guttering put up; the neighbours should be happy

    Yes, the pool sits at roof level and will have a deck around it and steps leading up to it from the flat roof

    the other info is in this thread, big beams and columns! the pool is about 5x2.5m

    Just a quick update...the builders are on holiday

    As for the house, as soon as the rendering is complete we are going to mothball the house. We will leave all the fitting out when we return later this year

    ....to be continued....

    Looks realy nice DrAndy ! But are you sure you are not building a Hotel there

    What I would be worried about is the envy from the neighbours.









    ....have to admitt I'am also a bit envy.

    Thanks Herman, but with only three bedrooms it would be a very exclusive hotel

    It looks a lot bigger than it is, especially as we have built the ceilings very high, and the building is squeezed into the space

    as mentioned before, the floor is approx. 100 sq.m., and the 1st floor is mostly open for the courtyard. The roof is being used though, which adds an extra floor

    Last post on this for a while

    We are getting the place painted, 2 coats outside, one in

    hopefully this will stop any algae growing on bare concrete until we return and assess the next step

    How many coats of paint (good stuff) does bare concrete need to look good?

    The painter says it should need 4 eventually, 3 inside
