    What an original idea! I wonder why more people in Thailand don't do that. Then we wouldn't have this massive rice shortage.

    Well, I looked at the "before and after" photos.

    Before: dirt

    After: rice paddy

    What else could I conclude?

    And do you know what you'll be spending on materials and labour, and where did you get the plans from?

    Sorry if I'm getting too nosey, but one day I'll be doing this, I'm sure. And probably in your area too.

    ^ I take it you like the quiet life. I built a house in Kalasin but only spent three nights there before becoming suicidal.

    If you are ever in Southend send me a pm.

    A mate of mine built a house surrounded by rice paddies, nice view, you can't sit outside and enjoy it though without being sucked dry by the swarms of mossies.
