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.

Have grovelled at the feet of the webmaster and offered incantations in the hope that a solution to the non-functioning image links can be found (or that I can have some editing privileges in order that I can replace the links without having to start another thread!)

Ahh yes the trials and tribulations of a house build. I was there a few times in our build process. Its stressful at times and when it gets stressful Thai women seem to get wrapped around the axle and start the money worrying thing and then of course our minds run away with us and we make it worse.

I hope it doesn't all fall apart. Place looked(I say looked as the pics are gone)great and a nice location.

Good Luck.

Thanks Diverken, I am forging ahead and things are starting to come together.

Seems that I have been able to secure the finances to complete the build, and might even be able to put furniture in as well.

Latest update is that the electrician had failed to put in a light switch in the guest bedroom (which had been rendered yesterday!), and also we are missing 2 lighting points (one in each bathroom above the places set aside for the mirrors).

Apart from that, there seems to be a change in mood from 'er indoors, now that some finances are on their way.. I won't comment on this just yet.

You are right Begbie, there is a lake at the base of Doi Mon Jeen, it's called Mae Pha Haen. There are also two other large lakes nearby, one next to me is Huay Lan, the other is Huai Mae On over near The Highland Golf course and resort.
Just my personal opinion, that area is the most unspoiled and scenic in the Chiang Mai area. Hope things work out.

Thanks JPPR2,

Trial and tribulations indeed!
All seems to be back to 'normal' now, thank goodness... I think my mention of finishing the build and then selling so that money can be put in the bank seems to have changed things somewhat.

Work continues with the build, but I'll hold off uploading photos until I can figure out why the 'eff the links to the ones I had posted already just went for a burton.

Outstanding news. You know one thing about Thai women versus western women is they are always up front on money issues and have no issues calling men on it. Its a weird dynamic that has taken me a few years to understand. I talk about retirement and my wife gives me that look of "what will we do?".....I said "Hey its coming and you have nothing to complain or worry about" she just walks away plotting and planning...

Posts here are time limited for editing, different times for different parts of the forum. It's probably 12 hours for this part of the forum.

Send a PM to Moderator asking permission to edit or ask them to do it for you. I believe it has been done before for another poster.

Interior and exterior rendering is going on right now, plus a few other amendments. I'll post them along with pics.

If the moderator can respond to the PM I sent, or the Webmaster can respond to the email I sent, then perhaps we can continue with posts including the new-fangled idea of there being pictures too!

Maybe I could describe the build without pictures?

I could describe the texture and colour of a reasonably smooth internal wall rendered in grey, pointing out the decent edging and window frame returns in a technical manner, or how the low sunlight slips through the long thin windows and proceeds to angle orange blades of light across the wall, offering perhaps a modern reflection of some imaginary ancient solar temple...

Dropbox ?

When I tried to view your photos I got a message from Dropbox .

Does that mean you have been loading them from Dropbox ?

I've always used Photobucket without a problem so maybe if you send to Photobucket and load them from there instead of Dropbox we might see the glory of the build ??

I have been using Dropbox and then adding the file link in my posts, I could use a different file sharing server like Onedrive, but I don't have editing privileges. So until I do, I only have 3 options really: i) add posts with only waffle and no piccies (which could offer up some community witticisms, but would be far from ideal) , ii) use photobucket/ another service to add images from today, but all the others will be blank (kind of works in a half-arsed way I guess), or iii) start a new thread all over again (which would be tedious)

Hi JE, or 4/ you could just load pics directly which is how I did my house building thread and I think all pics still there (martys house in the sticks) There are a few tutorials in the newbies section, try this link http://teakdoor.com/how-to-use-stuff...d-gallery.html (Tutorial for hosting photos , images on TD gallery)

ok, so, have managed to upload photos to this TD server, here's a test:



Seems to work fine (this is the first photo of the build, back when there was nothing but weeds, snakes and the odd cow on the land and my bank account had some money in it).

The only issue is that I still can't go back and edit my posts to put in the new image url's.. so unless I can access, I'm still going to have to close this thread and start another from scratch..

Looks OK by me. No need for perfection. Some of these members are relentless!

OK.. I don't think I'm going to get any help from TD's moderator, nor their web manager, so I guess I'll have to start a new thread. That's not fluffy. I might get to do this before the actual house is finished!
