    I think it is better to make your own, once you have got some ideas of what you want

    use an architect too, they often spot silly problems before you build!

    In addition, remember you are in Thailand, a lot of houses in those sites are totally unsuitable for the tropics. think about where the sun is, try to make sure you face away from it with few windows to the South

    have larger overhangs on your roof, for shade and shelter

    insulate any house against the heat as much as possible, have as much through draft potential as you can

    also remember, a great deal of your living will be OUTSIDE, so have large verandahs or sitting areas

    Design it for your lifestyle and for the tropics
    I have reported your post

    What type of house did you have in mind? And where; Karon beach? Material costs have risen substantially in the past few years so you should try to source the material yourself, if possible.
