    Looking for local contractors in Ban Chang

    Hi all, just signed up to TD today after spending the last week reading all the house construction threads. I have to say between all you guys you have the experience to help out a first time builder in Thailand.

    Reading all the great threads has inspired me to start my own as soon as i finalise the start of the construction. Will certainly be an experience!

    I want to start building the house early next year and have an architect working on the drawings now. I expect them to be completed by mid November. We have agreed on the final revision of the layout and elevations so its now down to completing the detailed construction drawings.

    So here is my first question.

    I have bought 1 Rai of land in Ban Chang and looking for local contractors / cantacts to start doing some work for me.

    First thing i need is to organise the land fill. Anyone got a contact name / number that they would recommend?

    Secondly i am looking at getting in contact with some builders. I was really impressed with SEA Travellers builder and would be keen on getting his contact details. Any can recommend any other builders around the area?

    If anyone can help out be most appreciated.

    The land is on the south west side of Eastern Star Golf Course, just outside the main boundry.

    I would recommend contacting SEA Traveller as he has already done everything you want to do in Ban Chang.

    ST has left the room. He will be travelling to the US for a few days so he may not be online much. I'm sure he will respond when he sees this post and questions.

    I too will be shopping for a builder as we just got our plans finished and approved. I have a couple of names of local guys in Ban Chang that we will be asking for a price. ST's builder may be one of them but not sure yet. ST's house must be close to your land as he is just north of the west gate to Eastern Star


    If you take the time to do the job right the first time you won't need to "find" the time to go back a second time

    I wish that I would have bought land down in Ban Chang years ago.

    Loy Toy, I have the basic house design worked out and was wondering if you interested in having a look at them and giving and feed back comments?

    Khun Skid, OK so it sounds as if we are going to be neighbors. Great. No substitute for a lot of up front planning. I'd welcome the opportunity to discuss and advise as I learned a lot from my land purchase and build process. I've sent you a PM so check that. If you respond via e-mail to me, use mtsinternational[at]hotmail.com As it relates to my builder, I can tell you he treated me well, is professional in every way, and uses a good work crew to do the work. Khun, my contractor will stand behind his work. Anyway, check the PM and get back with me.

    I do wish you good luck on your build. Have a sabai sabai approach to this as taking it too seriously will drive you up a wall. Ciao for now.
