    By the look of your plans the roof seems a little bit small - more over hang = more shade = cooler house = less electricity bills

    I'll second that : looks like a heat trap.

    Did you get that design from a thai architect ?

    How about getting at least some ventilation openings in the roof ? That helps the hot air to get out. If you mount a whistle in it, will also tell you when tea is ready.

    The trouble with insulation in a "hot-box" is that it can keep the heat inside.
    I definitely agree that you need to redesign the roof to have a greater over-hang.
    You may consider having eaves over the ground floor, as well.

    You dont have to, we're just talking.

    Remember the sun comes at roughly 45 degrees inclination (depending on where you are in the LOS), and when it hits the walls, the walls store the heat and give it back to you at night. That's just the time when you'd like to be fresh, and will use A/C.

    A possible solution, that doesnt require to mess around too much with the plans you got, is to make the eaves wider, to limit the direct insulation your walls get. Having vents in the roof will also help the hot air get out and refresh the place.

    Any plans to get some trees around ?

    House Plan

    Hi SunTzu, wrong guy, not my house.
    I would be making all the eves a lot wider and as someone said, have eves over all the lower floor windows as well.

    Received a few pics from the builder this week









    Have taken note off all your advise regarding the roof eves and will discuss with the builder as out there in three weeks also will look to have some glass blocks or a window put in the stairs. More to follow later today ok

    Those are some serious pilings. A lot bigger than I used for our BKK home.

    Looking good so far and please let us know how things are moving along!

    Same size as the ones I used. Piling is relatively cheap, so, it's best to go for overkill.

    Interesting, the different techniques used around the place.

    Great thread. Do keep it up, so to speak.

    Hope everything progressing well, good thread.
    Kitchen - I wouldn't put washing machine in kitchen, you will need all the space you have, just put outside somewhere? Dont forget (as I did!) that you will need somewhere for the water dispenser.
    You need good air circulation as well, Thai cooking smells aint too sweet!
