    Free Government house plan=>what advantage do i have?

    Hi there,
    Right now my thai wife owned some nice chanode land in Doi Saket area. Well, our next step will be to build a small 3 br budget house on it.
    Not yet sure we should do our own house plan, or should use the free Government house plans=> Thai House Plans - TeakDoor.com - The Thailand Forum
    Not yet clear for me....what Advantage do we have if we use the free Government house plan....we just keep the Money for the architect (i guess 10.000 THB)? A Building permission who need alot of time we do need for both...Right?

    cheers

    I don't think these plans have anything to do with the government. They were put up as freebies to members, ostensibly to save time and money not least because a lot of people building houses here will have no real life experience of doing so so its a good place to start. Tried and tested as well.
