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.

A lot of stuff said about Euca,there not supposed to be planted around ponds either,though majority of ponds have them my ponds are surrounded by them, we didn't put all the Euca stumps in the locals are taking them away. we did put the big mango stump in though.

Isn't Eucalyptus toxic to aquatic life?

Yet, I might still be weary of Euc as it's quite destructive to the already poor soil that permeates the plateau - sucks the life outta any area where it grows [plantation style].

beats planting rice maize etc,and sure as hell easier to make money,and there is differing opinions about the subject.

The locals around here believe it stops the rain.

Differing, perhaps, yet not intelligent or wise.

You may wish to read up on the Ecology of Euca.

Then again you may wish to read up on the destruction of farmland through pesticides etc.

Just came back from the farm to see the water being drained from one of the ponds,must be about half metre of Euca leaves in the bottom of the pond and the fish are happy as larry and are still alive,though the wife and friends are having there fun trying to catch the little rascals.

Mate, no need ... seriously, it's a PITA to try and do.

Yes, some members say it's an intelligence test ... I say bollocks to that tripe ... it's massively inefficient.

I simply have a PhotoBucket (or similar cloud based photo storage accounts), upload to there and link.

Just set your folders up correctly the first time because, if the photo gets moved within PhotoPucket, the photo is lost to the board forever.

Just a suggestion ...

Having researched this also, and still a year or so away from start building I came to some conclusions: hot and humid climate asks for wind and shadow.
The adobe and/or earthbags are suitable for hot arid arid climates. A while ago I spend a couple nights in a clayhouse in a resort in pala-u. The clayhouse works if you keep it open in the night and close it during the day. This is a security issue and not practical in use.

My house gonna be on poles to catch wind. Also no concrete etc . Probably wood. A half hour after sunset the house will have the same temp as the surroundings. Many awnings all around and a lot of shiftdoors and/or strategically placed windows to catch the breezes.

[The land is approx 1344m2 as the width as usual around here are never straight, the fill will be around 1m when compressed. I reckon when finished tomorrow will be around 130/135 car loads.

I've been considering poles for air flow.The home will be U shaped with covered areas right
around the front of the house.

Be interesting to see your ideas.

An age old practice here - because it works.
Aside all of these newer impractical dwellings, you'll still find numerous of this design and understanding.

Cheers, Tommy!!
