    Welcome aboard the friendly TD choo choo train of love, SM.

    Good luck with your new home bro...

    and good luck with uploading pics... you'll bloody well need it!

    The powers that be, have deliberately made that process as convoluted as humanly possible - using clunky MS-DOS circa 1980.

    You are joking aren't you? I avoid the place at all costs. Terminal 21 should never have been built where it is. The place is grid locked at peak times, which seems to be all the time.

    It's each to their own Dick but I really dislike the place, I live 100 km SE of korat and that's close enough for me. Some may not like where I live but...............

    Not my favorite place either, felt the people were colder than in Khon Kaen city...

    Prefer to live outside a main city, but not too far out in the sticks.

    Internet connection......and building with PD

    its fair bit of luck here with decent internet,which means i dont have a good connection all the time downstairs,despite my little aerial plugged in......but its much better than in the 1.floor(my wife's parents place)its too hot up there...(the connection is better up there btw...)

    got a ceiling fan outside here and can have a beer after work.....and chill out......

    my 1. post was in "Stevefarang" thread.....and whoever wants to built with PD,its worth reading "builing a house in Nakom Pathom" too....

    by the time we already signed the contract with PD,back in october 2013,when i came to TD and read his.....too late....

    we bought the small plot,not far away from my wife parents in 2011,done the perimeter wall(i dont want the neighbors to look what farang does all the time....lol....).....and were looking for a decent builder with a nice house......

    we ended up with PD,because they had a couple of offices in BKK.
    dealing with them and make changes was easy,because i did FIFO(fly in fly out)from AUS....and i told them that i will do all the electrical work in the house....

    they werent happy on the beginnings and said,no problem you can add as many powerpoints as you want....yeah for about 600Bht one piece and cheap shit....lol..
    the whole electrical layout on the original was crap anyway.....and me as a sparky would never trust a thai sparky....have seen enough of it......

    well on the end it was all good...you have to keep up with construction flow and we can give you no warranty for the electrical work they said....no worries mate i said.....

    I see you have an upstairs toilet. How will that be connected ? The reason why I ask is cuz I know a guy that had the same and they put his pipework in the ceiling space below. The builder put no fall into the pipework and consequently he has s*** coming through the ceiling into the kitchen.

    as long as it doesnt drop down from the ceiling it should be alright......lol....

    i needed to correct the foreman too to have a slope downwards and not upwards as he did first......he was not aware of......(i think he really doesnt know what a slope is)....not sure yet if it leaks,we will see soon hopefully.....it goes through the dining then outside to the septic...gonna show pics later.....

    All stench pipes, in my opinion, should exit the wall adjacent to the toilet and connect to the waste tank via that route. Thais don't like pipework on the exterior of the house even though it's more practical.
