    I was offered a free house before at some school about 30km from Pattaya, it was so bad that even the teachers there didn't want to live there, I suppose thats the sort of place most teachers get offered here in Thailand when they offer free accomodation in with the package deal.

    It's inbetween here and BanChang, we had to stick a new roof on the school cafeteria, never did have the number as the work was paid for by some charity organisation.

    they all seem a bit monstrous DD

    any plans of shacks?

    How about a good architect that actually can plan a modern house without it looking like a mansion for a fuckwit

    I will be building a house in Chiang Mai in the future, so want something modern but not nouveau riche looking

    Send a site survey map and kind of shacks you want to build and material you want to you. I might be able to help since I have plan files 1000 sq. ft. homes and less that's single story. It's be interesting to build a home in LOS with US specifications.

    actually, I like wooden houses, we have one at the moment. But the wifey wants something less noisy (from the outside, that is...dogs, music,chickens and drunken brawls) so a concrete one is likely. I have to agree with her! She does like wooden floors though.

    Maybe a house based on the Straits Chinese ones in Malaysia...long places with an open central courtyard, really nice. It gives you a quiet place for coffee without any distractions! not much view though.

    I gather you are a bloody good architect? Is there any need in LOS for architects or engineers?

    Not me. I'm a bladdy good beer drinker though.

    There is a need for architects here, but all the ones I know are specialists on the Skytrain/Underground projects.

    I worked on Washington D.C. and New York City subway tunnels as an engineer but I don't recall seeing any architect on the projects. What capacity do they use the architects for Skytrain and Underground projects?

    I met an engineer who worked on new airport between Bangkok and Pattaya. He worked for TAMS and said they hired all the local contractor for the projects.

    The architectural work is on the stations, not the tunnels.

    Do you really need 4 bedrooms dougal? also the main bedroom should really be in the corner of the building so you can have 2 window walls.

    Also, I wouldn't recommend a cyan pick-up. That colour is so 'last year'.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Its really just an exercise to see how much can be slotted in to a given shape. Giving each bedroom its own bathroom meant I had to put them in the corners to keep the bedrooms square. The master bedroom does open onto the pool.

    I need to think seriously about whether there is more demand for 3 or 4 bedrooms as I want to sell this one.
    Lord, deliver us from e-mail.
