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.

Great job, Slimboyfat.
I'm assuming that the location is near your wife's family...though from the pics it didn't appear to be in "the village".
How far away is your Thai family ?

About 10 mins walk - if you dare to run the gauntlet with all the local dogs

Good build at a nice budget.. Im currently looking around what to built and this plan is one of the options. Im thinking if "stretching" it to 12 meter..

Looking great mate �� I was just directed to this post from another helpful poster, I asked in another thread if anyone knew where I could buy inexpensive land close enough to bkk . Don't mean to hijack the thread but if you know anyone that's selling I'd be interested to hear at that price . Great bit of land

Yes I reckon you are right. It's on the list to sort out before rainy season.
Unless you wanna put in a rainwater tank, I'm not a believer in guttering in the tropics- when it rains heavily, it just overwhelms the guttering anyway. And having recently had to pay for repairs and painting for the guttering on our place down south, frankly I wish I hadn't bothered- we don't have guttering up here in Ubon, (except at the back to feed a rainwater tank), and really don't miss it. PVC is the best guttering material- but it's bluddy expensive.
Interesting opinion. Maybe will see how it goes when the rain starts then take it from there.
I put in "Singapore" style "guttering", so rain comes off the roof straight into a drain which is about 3 inches deep around the property aligned where the runoff from roof is, this feeds straight into the main drainage system.
Sure you know what I mean............

Cheers.
That will be my retirement job for when we stay there permanently.
Now I'm still working full time in Singapore and most of the time my wife and daughter are with me.
