    Big or small. My first picture thread!



    Well this is a picture of one of the houses I have designed and built over the course of the last 4-5 years and one which I will handing over to the customer next week.
    My wife and I are very proud of our achievements especially and before we started this business we had absolutely no building experience.
    I will be posting more pictures of our house designs showing the interiors and exteriors and if anyone has any questions or comments I would appreciate your input and opinions.
    I also love the build threads and as I am doing some major pool repairs I will also post the development work on TD and if anyone is interested.
    Also definately not trolling for work just want to share my experiences with the people on TD.

    Looks very nice LT.
    4-5 years seems a very long time to build a house, why did it take so long?

    The property also has a guest garden bungalow and there is 2 outdoor shower/ change rooms one next to the barbeque terrace and one next to the bungalow.

    To be honest LT, I think the design is a bit boring and predictable, Not wishing to offend but, there you go.
    I had the pleasure of a entertaining evening out with Sabang earlier this week and he was kind enough to show me ariound his house, and thats one I could really live with, very nice place, but I will have to wait until the boat arrives.

    Mrs. Chi is simple in taste thank goodness!

    She wants to know how much for the bungalow and the pool if we have land already.

    Or just the bungalow minus the pool.

    I can be cheapskate and hero all at the same time!!

    She says 9 bathrooms? the poor farang must have his wife's whole family living with them!

    That it is exactly the constructive comments I am looking for PP.

    I actually don't like the house so much but my customer adores it. I actually sat down with him and done the basic layout and it turned out exactly as he wanted.
    Rented it to an American last week for 140k per month. Exactly what he was looking for also.
    Horses for courses and thats what makes this business (building and property development) so difficult.
    Building 4 more houses at the moment which I far prefer and I will post some pictures of these as well.

    Ah, someone I can finally ask.

    Why the need for so many bathrooms in these houses and big condos? Seems to me like it's a waste of space.

    Medium!! I think 600 x 800 is the preferred size, so you don't have to scroll sideways. Or is it 800x 600???
    Is that, what you were asking? Photo size, pixels?

    The hand made bed in one of the master bedrooms. No other furniture in the the room as yet and it looks cavernous.
    Actually with the recessed lighting it looks very sexy and was not expensive to build.

    Again, Mrs. Chi wants to know how much for the bungalow and the pool if we have land already. One / two bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a small kitchen.

    Or just the bungalow minus the pool.

    Now this is the first house that I built and still is our favourite.
    Brought the ground floor as a shell construction and finished it of perfectly in a lot of peoples opinion.
    This will be the place I take my family back to live and once the lease term is over.
