    House Extentsion, Recommendations (Chiang Mai)

    Hurroh,

    'We' (that being my wife told me we need to do it) have decided to get cracking on the renovations/extentsions to our house.

    I'd be keen to hear from anyone in CM who has either built or had renovations/extentsions done and any advice they could offer - in particular on the contractor(s) used.

    I'm not overly concerned about price, I'd actually prefer to pay more if I could rest assured that a good job will be done.

    Now I'm no expert on these things but to my mind it's all pretty simple what we want doing, cut an arch thingy in one wall, fill in another, bang in a few of those sliding door thingies, a bay-window thingamajig, floor and ceiling etc*




    *Please forgive the use of overly technical terms.

    Really? Moo-baan mob or private contractor? If the latter do you still have the number/contact details?

    I do, but my wife tells me that he isn't answering the phone these days.
    She tried to get hold of him a couple of weeks back for someone else.

    ^Ahh ok, no probs. Cheers anyways, the search continues!

    First time I've done something like this and it really is quite worrying! Particularly as the renovations is going to be to the living room and I want it done properly as I'm such a fussy bastard!

    ^Yeah but I'm pretty sure they're the same bunch that did the last renovations there and those left quite a lot to be desired
