We were told the land under and around our house had been treated to stop Termites, utter BS, When house finished noticed wood dust on floor, was told Termites and treated the house, drilled holes in the tiles in Kitchen and Parquet floors in lounge and bedrooms and injected the killer filling holes in wood floor OK but tiled floor a terrible match, hope you had your ground treated to save a messed up floor in the future.

we had tubes put in when they built the foundations, to pump the insecticide in. Even then the termites still appeared in one or two areas

we had to drill the tiles in our old house, the same as you. It worked well enough

Yes we had it treated and we have installed the termite system which goes under the floor.

The whole budget is 3 million and it looks like we are going to stay well within, all thanks to my project manager Khun Supachai and the builder Khun Weet - I have never met more honest Thai people in my 25 years coming here! That even includes all the woodwork inside - almost all of the ceilings are made from wood - which should look very nice after little spotlights and indirect lighting is added.
I also managed to get all wooden doorframes and doors done in teak (19 of them plus the main entrance double door), but large glass doors and windows will be aluminium.

it's acctually 3 different kinds - the big meaty ones - problem is that they don't get a chance to get really big! The two night guards are always hungry! And yes I bought - after the first few weeks - some fishfood - the bloody fish are like dogs now - at around 5 PM they all assemble in the left corner of the pond for "dinner" to be served.
If one of the workers washes his hands in the pond they all rush there because they think its feeding time!

I must say here that everthing has worked fine so far without ay major problems. The only problem we encountered was C-Pak roof tiles, I wanted to have them up before the rainy season and they promised to deliver in 3 weeks. Well it took them 1 1/2 month! The shop told me that C-Pak seems to have a delivery / production problem - some of the new style "flat" tiles that are 3 times the price of regular ones have a delivery time of up to 5 month!!!

The "delivery problem" is simply because CPAC is incapable of accepting the fact that inventories need to be increased to support demand. Hence, they produce when they receive an order.
