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.

I made some nice money on the side just doing simple house work, power points, fans lights and general stuff.

Easy work easy money.

Glad it was only done when I chose to do it though.

Don't think i could do that now though, Need to fill in a job form with ya license # I think. ??

That said, fuk crawling through roofs in Summer.

Back to the past again... --24.4.16 onwards--

about the same stuff as before Songkran......chasing walls,put conduits in,and close 'em up again....starting with the bricks upstairs too...

the water and shit-tanks are coming too....

and by the 26.4.the roof tiles are coming...it goes on as before songkran....full steam ahead....






me in action,this bricks are very easy to work....but a hell lot of dust....plus me and my wife and some cambodians got some skin rashes....a high level of Potassium in the bricks,cement and plaster...i asked a good mate of mine in CH who is a sculpture-works with natural stones....and showed him....despite my super safety gear.... lucky i didnt throw it away after i left SINO....

skin issues on my arms,hands and feets.....some cream-Clinivate-N helped....

i looked like a 90years old,skin like....







water and shit tanks
the watertank is an additional one from us..not in contract,2000L



a truck full of roof tiles...



we upgraded it to "NEUSTYLE" and choosed a light,not a dark colour......its gonna be less hot,than a darker roof tile....

Great thread.

Could I ask you the cost of the house construction without the land, fixtures and fittings. Just the ballpark figure. Thanks.

The crew you had working on your house really seem to know their stuff.

You're very lucky.

Impressive electrics mate..Interesting putting wiring in the slab? Sorta wonder why you are doing work and purchasing outlets yourself ? Assume you bought a 'lock up' stage house?
Three plus million is no small potatoes ( A$130k?) paid 30k over that in Melbourne about 15 year ago..for a much larger four bed house albeit wood frame and brick. Only thing I did was pre-wire telephone and LAN and install lighting fixtures.

The water tank you picture (blue?) looks more like a septic tank..no bottom outlets?

Window frames pictured do not have lintels or usual re concrete framing?

No offense just observations...

I work that out at 200 K AUD.

It looks like it also includes the land. ?????

If so, it's not too bad is it. ?

One hell of a house.

How do you recon you would go today buying the same Gaff.

200 K AUD in Perth would not buy you the foreskin from the Guy selling the toilet.

Notice he has used conduit in his wall.

A very good practice and when i was on the Tools Australian Standards dictated that it must be done this way.

The theory being if some coont is drilling the wall hopefully when they hit the conduit they will stop before hitting the wires.

Then they dropped that Standard and allowed Cable to be laid in a chase with conduit protection.

Fooked if I know how they worked that one out given the very strict Australian wiring code.

thanks mate


yes,it was a lock up contract,but i made sure i can do the electrical work and use the stuff i wanted...they deducted the money for the materials....as well for the chasing and conduit work...

we asked for money for the sparky work,but no hear...anyway im happy i did it ...doing it...

watertank is underground,all the fittings are on top

frames are concrete framing...

no problem mate....

Then they dropped that Standard and allowed Cable to be laid in a chase with conduit protection.

Fooked if I know how they worked that one out given the very strict Australian wiring code.
as i started as a TA- trade assistant in perth,house bashing....run the naked cable in the wall....
i couldnt believe it first....got used to it......

sparkies then telling me how high the standard is in AUS......yeah very high....i thought for myself.....and what iv seen in some roof space....

had many discussions with workmates in the mines too.....i gave up....just thought my things.....

in CH,any cable,wire "must be replacable" at any time...if im right....the rules lowered as well,more close to european standad,NIV i think they call it nowadays...

the thais think too they have the highest electrical standards on the planet....

Wouldn't worry Terry. the way the mining is falling off and the jobs with it, you''ll be able to buy one for for the cost of the toilet seat soon.

I'm not worried mate, bought my last house 10 years ago for 180 K, paid off done and dusted.

Now just collecting the rent.
i wish i would have bought a house when i came first to AUS-WA-Perth in 1992.....for holidays

to expensive now....yeah waiting for that.......whether its happening or not....time will tell....

The Australian wiring standard that says ya can can chase a wall, lay a cable in it and then plaster over it is a tad retarded I recon.

Australia prides it self on having very high standards and then they amend the standard to allow a system that is unsafer than before.

On the average Thai house where they run the cable down the wall were it's visible is much safer than a hidden cable within the wall that has no protection.

On one of my houses i drilled into a hidden power cable, I was on a ladder and lucky not end up in Hospital. ????

Glad I foked off to Thailand.

a couple of more switches,wall lights and some smokies up today

...and watched the foreman installing the dunnies,the base part....

he asked me(my wife) if he could leave today,instead of 2mrow....yes mate we are not such un-human.....

btw after he said: we dont need more people..not much work here left..say what...no f*&^%# way....i heard this story before...

bring em on,on the 7.1.17,or do you stay above engineer....he tries everything...wants the money just for himself....



if you would told me ,you would need this stuff one day, i think i would called you insane....




but it worked...the marks-the bell signs are off,what a beauty.....

im using this in different places where i have 3 or more switches,in conjunction with a latching relay....much easier than 3 way wiring or more......



like here,another switch is when you get into the door...relay in switch board....




outdoor light installed,a pain but it looks good...from AUS

Da Voluce Lighting Studio | Lighting Shop Melbourne, Lighting Store Victoria. Elsternwick, Toorak, Richmond, Kew, South Yarra. www.davolucelighting.com.au




from AUS too....



and the foremans work...he did one more downstairs....the tiles are redone here too now....
