    Glass block will look better. Rather than one piece, make two, two wide glass block windows.

    Yep starting to look like something is happening now mate....I used big pillars also ..or should I say my wife did....dont be afraid to make them alter or redo things that you didnt ask for or dont agree with whilst in construction as it is nigh on impossible to get anyone back after it is finished....we made the builders redo or move quite a bit of stuff during its construction

    Hi,

    I notice that you have used precast concrete piles as foundations. Is this method of construction widely used in Thailand and is it less costly than excavation and concrete pad foundations? Is there some form of load testing of the piles or is it left to the contractor to decide when to stop piling?

    I am presuming that the piles are tied together a ground level with the RC ground beams.

    Fantastic thread, love following a decent build. Remember the golden rule, (don't let the wife and MIL pick the tiles ) and you will be sitting pretty. Hoping to build in LOS in the near future myself, any idea of final costs yet ?

    Re Ventilation in your kitchen, a range hood is essential for over your stove and exhaust fan of course ducted to outside.Most Thais including my wife prefer to cook outside in what I term a "dirty kitchen" so consider having a small area with covering for this purpose.
    I also put an exhaust fan at the top of the stairs to take away the hot air that rises.Quality air vents in your ceiling area will help your upstairs remain cooler.

    We bought in Baan Hansa on the Kut Chap road and fortunately as our home was only half built at the time we were able to make some changes.I previously built in the Philippines and that experience was enough for me to not go through it again.Good luck though I wish you well.

    Hi Wilbs: My name is Gary and I'm building a house in Nong Bua Lam Phu. I have a couple of questions for you. My email address is: retiredone2007[at]gmail.com. 1. I like the brick covering you used for your carport posts. Where did you get it and do you recall the price per sq.m.? 2. We are still undecided on our kitchen furnishings, but liked your layout. Index Living Mall? How much for the cabinets? Appreciate your input.
