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.

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...

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...

Back in the land of smile

.....so we are back since about 3weeks by now.....
we had a wonderful time in Australia.......away from this nightmare here....lol...

but we soon recognized that nothing happened at our house while we were away..... surprised??? no not at all.....

PD HOUSE said "we gonna be there 2 weeks before you'll be back and it will be nearly finished".

what a rubbish.....as usual.....

so we rung up BKK office,2 days later some people came,done something,and left again for a couple of days.......
it is so frustrating with them......apparently they went on strike ,because they didnt get payed from KORAT BRANCH OF PD HOUSE --is kind of independent from PD-bought out,what i heard.

i keep you updated and some more picture will follow.....

outstanding work and the phone call from PD HOUSE KORAT

i couldnt believe what happened yesterday.....
PD HOUSE Korat rung up and asked us if we want to hire another contractor to finish the house off?? WTF

my wife answered first she has to ask her husband.....

we talked about it,my wife rung up PD HOUSE and she said:you started it and now you want that someone else gonna clean up your bum.....no you can clean up your bum by yourself...

a tactical play from PD Korat,because its gonna cost them a lot all this fuck ups......paying the fine,the petrol everyday,the pay for the workers etc etc etc
there is only a small amount left,we have to pay after the deduction,say about 100'000 to 150'000 Baht.....

we then rung HQ in BKK....they were quite shocked hearing that....
looks as they had a board meeting and we told them too if they are not finished by end of June we gonna go social media.....

so lets see,whats happening.....


attached are a few pics.....





















its only a summary of pictures....there is more....and i havent started with the outside(apart from septic tank)

Wow, looks like a whole load of stress right there, enough to put anyone off building in LOS.

Stating the obvious here, and repeating what others have said and what's already known, but to the benefit of others who are viewing this forum with plans to build their own place:

1: Using a large company with an HQ based elsewhere can be problematic for single bespoke builds, these companies often base their business models on moo baan developments, which have different logistics to single builds.

2: Large companies may seem to offer a range of benefits such as a proven track record of existing builds and qualified teams, however it seems that these companies hide behind layers of departments, where lack of accountability and poor communication become obvious when issues occur with the build. It's easier to pressure a single person than a company when you want things done.

3: If you can't visit the site every day, then employ a full time site manager, or don't construct anything for the duration of being absent. Or don't build, just buy an existing house.

4: If possible, employ very local small teams, as the potential 'loss of face' if things go wrong is a great motivator to get things right in LOS. Loss of face and accountability on a local level should never be underestimated here.

5: Turn up to the site or offices with other people you know on tow.. accompanying children also help, as then you cease to be just a single person, or walking ATM machine, but a person who has contacts and are waiting for the job to be finished and done well. In Japan, people who want a pay rise or a change in their job in some way take along one of their kids, it implies that there are consequences and it's not just about the individual. It's a passive/aggressive approach which is unfamiliar to us in the West. The concept of 'consequences' here in LOS isn't easily absorbed, it has to be pointed out constantly (look at the state of the driving!).

OK, enough with the negativity and hindsight, not much use to you right now showupman... on a positive note, you seem to be striking a nerve at HQ, at least they are now aware of the issue and who you are. The issues you are facing can all be fixed. To save your sanity though, I'd suggest not taking a snapshot of everything in one go. By dumping all the problems in one big pile, even the small fixable things will seem insurmountable. I'd suggest making a file for each of the issues, dated with description, photo, and if possible solution, as each problem is given attention, update the file with info and sign off when fixed, this way you'll see progress (even if it's slow and small!).

Stay strong, controlled and level-headed... it's understandable that emotions creep in, but this doesn't help solve issues over in this part of the world much I'm afraid.

Almost there, keep going!
