CNX... Just discovered this thread and it has been interesting reading. We should get started building in January. Roughly how much per square meter do you think all of your work will end up costing you?

Likely. Andy makes a good point re kw rating. You may need a bit more so 8kw model would be better. No opinion on solar. No experience.

If we stay within budget and it looks like we will - it will be around 5500 Baht per sm2.
This should include all wood work and bathroom appliancies incl. a jacuzzi in the master bedroom.

"With this layout I had maximum privacy in mind for everybody - we all know how annoying long family visits can be - this way they are almost staying like in a hotel room - and can have their morning coffee at 6 AM if they like - without waking me - I have to admit that I am more of a night than a morning person."

Thanks CNX, that makes a lot of sense and very practical. If no "company" that wing can be shut down and conserve energy. Very good idea and again, I really look forward to the "finished" pictures.

CNX, that is a very low cost per square meter! Congrats on finding an exceptional builder. I would have guessed closer to 10,000 baht. I wonder if your guy would build up in Mae Taeng? Our project would be easy compared to yours.

Yes most of the quotes I had from builders before that where around 10.000 / sm2 or more.

I will speak to Supachai. They are a great bunch and not money oriented at all - he told me once it is more important for him to have his people imployed constantly than make alot of money off one project - they all have families to take care of so they need employment. Thats why I also give them lots of little extras like drinks after work now and then or even throw a party - they are very happy with cheap booze and food. I also bring a bag with soft drinks, Red Bull, e.g now and then - keeps them happy. We are also planning to go on a day trip renting a bus once we are 90% or so finished.

Few things to consider though: How good is your Thai? As the only one who speaks a little bit English is Supachai. How far is it from Chiang Mai?
Most of the crew are from Doi Saket and San Kampheng. So a factor to consider might be diesel cost for them driving to and from work if it is very far. But that should not be a big amount. Some will stay there. The "watchman" who more or less lives there gets an extra 1500 Baht a month from me that is arranged through the builder, appart from the salary he gets from the builder.
Is there suppliers near the site? If they are far away they might charge for delivery.But this can all be worked out.
Not sure if I am allowed in this forum to post my email address so you can contact me?

here the first interior pics.....so far 3000 wood panels have been treated, sanded. Any little holes and stuff will be filled with a mixture of the collected sawdust and glue - than sanded again and three layers of paint and lacquer.

living room..we had to find a solution around the steel roof construction this is what we came up with - two "roofs" under one roof. The openings left will be colored glass. there will also be colored glass beside the main entrance.
