Construction in Thailand Is building in Thailand as bad as it seems? Can properties really be built and fitted out to European standards? Would you like to Build your own house in Phuket, or a swimming pool in Bangkok? Solar water heating in Pattaya? Or maybe you want to build a resort or guesthouse on Koh Samui? If you want to build a luxury house in Thailand then this is the forum for you.

And ditto BKKBILL . Meaning thank you .... even just for reading !

Although it's a bit risky to say to people " You will be surprised " - I'm certain I can live up to that !! "

OK must make coffee and rummage and scan .

I'm enjoying this tale too.

I'm guessing that the surprise ending is that the house fell down in a torrential downpour or blew away in a strong wind, due to poor quality workmanship.

.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ...............................

I've scanned in enough for some progress .

Now you need to understand that about this time Missy discovered someone about 8 miles away who cast Split Roman Columns . I would call them Greek but she insists they are " Roman King " . They are cast split and you wrap them around existing old cement columns and then fill them with more cement . The guys who make them are cousins . ?.?.?.?

Sorry . I know you can't get enough of photos of holes in the ground with rebar sticking up or photos of trucks delivering concrete beams .... but that's just what this is ............. Not a house build .
Just she getting her own way -- and she LOVES these " Roman King " .

You'll start to see them now .

She has 26 of them.

A reminder ............ this is the original downstairs although we've cleaned it out a lot and I've even used Photoshop to make it look lighter than it's normal pitch gloomy self .

That's a little back door there .



That little door and its wall were removed and the guys took the extension out that way to make a kitchen ... and more space . And as soon as they did so Missy discovered the " Roman Kings " .

So the next photo is looking straight back into that extension and you start to see Roman Kings .




The left-hand column away from you was previously the end of the house . Between this one and the right was that wall and the back door . I don't know why .... when she turned the corner .... she changed the colour of the floor tiles . But anyhow that was the outside before this work .


If you were here earlier you saw a strapping good-looking fallang doing some grouting .
I said she had it in mind to turn that corner and extend out that way for storage and then a toilet .

And she did that .






Despite the rumours I don't hang around taking photos of toilets . It's just a toilet .
A crap photo of a crapping room .

.................................................. ..

Now turning around and looking back to the front door .




The front door is the same spot as was original .

Traverse right at the front door. Past that semi Roman King and behind that bit of wall is the domain of the lurking indolent brother .

But at least he's out of the main house .


And that took me two hours to put up ... so I need to stop , have a drink , look at a bit of tv !

Well ROOB , Doing this has made me ponder your question about the number of columns and extensions.

When I consider how things were done I suppose it comes to 4 different renovations .

It wasn't meant to be like this . But you spends your Bahts the first time and then there's too much spent to go and waste it so you stay on that site .

NOW of course she thinks if she could go back she would have torn down the house and made a new build .

However ...... I've seen plenty of new builds and too many are dull . This house has a lot of character because it has nooks . Crannies . even Grannies !

Tell me Roob ............ I upload my photos to Photobucket and then take from there to this thread .

If I delete them in Photobucket will they disappear from the Thread ?

With your hundreds of postings you probably know the answer .

I like this ' head on a wall ' feature although it would be better if it was balanced by another head on the other side of the gate. A couple of lightbulbs inside them would look very ..................um ........arresting at night time.

Thank you Marmite .

I didn't know if the pictures were essentially copied from Photobucket to Teakdoor meaning I could delete them from Photobucket .

So that seems to mean when I'm reading a Post from 2006 and it has photos then those photos are still sitting in Photobucket ??
7 years later .

Do you know how I can put in a photo straight from say My Documents ? Without having to leave it out in another site like this ?

And thank you again .

Well I'll forget the tv as folks is still showing an interest .


The Roman Kings have started their conquest of this renovation and they start to appear outside now .

Missy has clearly been given too much freedom as she now seeks permission to extend out from that pillar which was the front of the dwelling ....... that pillar which had the red arrow .

She wants to move out from that pillar and make a balcony for upstairs ( for me ) ... though she thinks it's called a " bikini " for me ..... for reading .

And here's some double joy for all you hard-bitten serious TD followers ..... some cementing and Rebar !!! ( and Roman Kings ) .







I haven't got any pictures of the holes because only my money was there . I was in England .
So maybe there are no holes at all . But that's OK . My bikini doesn't slope much .

The photos have to be somewhere on the internet, whether it's Photobucket, TD's gallery (not for the fainthearted), Flikr or your own server space.

You cannot upload directly from your PC on this antiquated forum.

Thank you BaitongBoy


At some point somebody will ask me about the costs in this but I have no idea at all what this cost . Truly .

And it's all because of a guy I spoke to in England one time .

I had been to Goa on holiday and that's where I first came upon this phenomenon of people who were living in absolute poverty but spent no time moaning about it and gave out beaming smiles if you spoke to them .

They upset me .

Back in England this idiot said to me " Well you can't help them all . "

And he's right . I can't help them all . But I seethed about it .

I wanted a comeback.

And I realised I should have answered - " Does that mean you never help anyone ? "

When I met Missy I realised again - well I can't help everyone - but I can help ONE ?

Help one and you help about 30 . Because she employed people and these people had families . So help one and you help in the end maybe 80 .

These guys were terrific . 2 a day ..... and folks said don't give more because when your job is finished they'll be back working for Thais and you make things difficult for everybody .

So they got 2 . Missy went out and bought the materials .

And she cooked them lunch .

What the workers loved most of all was that they could take their money home .
Every day after work we bought snacks , beer , whisky , soda and ice . they didn't have to spend their money because they are after all just blokes with parched throats and I was grateful to have the chance to throw a whole 6 note at the local shop .

I've no idea what the changes cost . Honestly .

I loved having the chance to do it .

Once .

And then on the other hand ............


I trusted Missy utterly totally and completely .
And she has never never let me down .
And my pal felt exactly the same about his Thai lady .
And she took him for quite a few million Baht !!!!!


So yes it's lovely to help someone when you can --- but it's also easy to find that you've been a monkey .

.........................

And one more step today .

We have Roman Kings going up to enable a bikini to be built .
And a bikini duly started .

This picture deserves some looking at . That pillar from the first photo - the pillar with the red arrow ...... well that has now been encased in a Roman King and it is marked here with a red cross .

We've come out to a new row of Roman Kings and a " bikini " has commenced .

And an observant eye sees another extension starting beyond the bikini.
But even I find this photo intriguing .

The original house is still there . And you can see it if you start from the red cross .


Returning soon .....................

Wasp

Live and learn...Some say the truth is unattainable...

As for monkey town...I've never been to Lop Buri, but I've had lots of invites...Don't think I wanna fight the monkeys...

A bad Thai lady is enough of a monkey, thanks...
