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.

Sounds good. I have yet to find a sealant in these parts that doesn't deteriorate rather fast. Clearly its climate related and of course UV degradation if out in the sun.

I am big into solar and this country is the perfect place for it. I have all solar lights outside coupled with motion activated solar security lights as well. we even have a solar doorbell LOL! I plan on adding a big bank on my car park shop area to run my fans, power tools, chargers etc. Albeit power is cheap up north, having a viable sustainable source of free power is a nice option.

Cheers

I investigated the solar option. It proved to be unreliable and uneconomical.

They have been at it a long time.

The mind boggles how they can be so utterly unreliable and incompetent at times.

The only reason i can work out is that companies like this have no regulator watching over them so in turn they don't give much of a fuk.

Good luck with it anyway mate Eh.

Friggin Gong show I recon.

yes i expected a bit more too,honestly....even the engineer is unreliable,he lost it with us too...sweet talk and thats it...plus he tries to cover up the foremans f%#$-ups...
well lucky for us,i have a fairly good eye and a bit of knowledge up my sleeves...

they still havent finished inside...not able to.....

thanks mate...gonna be back in LOS by mid May.....

in AUS we used a bitumen tape around entries in the ceilings for the conduits-cables......it seemed to be ok......
the sun and UV radiation is a big thing yes.....

i mean there is nothing wrong about free hot water from the sun...i love it...
and it was no additional,it was in the contract....we added more hot water points in the house...

one good thing from PD House...i have to admit....and a good thing that a sub-contracor installed it....and not them...
