    Architect / Engineer / clever person wanted

    We're looking for someone to consult with over the property we've bought.

    What can we do to/with it?

    Some one experienced if not actually qualified.

    Trouble is we're out bush, about 45 minutes from Chiang Kong and 2.5 hours from Chiang Rai.

    If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please let me know.

    Cheers

    OK, I'll give it a go.

    Trouble is I've kinda done this before.

    However, rest assured, this is the plot, this is the house.

    But what the fock do I do with it?

    I did suggest a design fest. Bottle of JD Black to the winner.

    And I do stand by my offers. Ask Nawty.

    Still, I do need someone who knows about building stuff to advise us.

    pip pip

    Why not grow turnips, beets and collard greens,, there is a great shortage of them here.
    They have something I seen called Collards, but they sure as shit ain't collard greens.
    And Jalapenio peppers, used to get some good ones grown up there.

    Good suggestions BK ( aka humungous dickerundum)

    I could sleep under the leaves.

    Looking at raising a wood house by 3 meters.

    Putting in a big slab underneath.

    If I remember right you were wanting to buy a piece of land on a
    hilltop overlooking the Mekong river. If that is the property you
    should build lots of windows to capture the view. Maybe it is time
    for another design competition. That would be fun!

    If it's am architect your'e after, I have an aquaintance that teaches architcerture in a college in Phan and also part time at Mae Fah Luang university.
    Don't know if he knows about Engineering but he did design the new buildings that are opposite Samakii school in Chiang Rai.
    Get you pictures up, tell us how many rai and an idea of location and I'll see what he says.
    You'll never plough a field by turning it over in your mind.

    Set the budget and what you desire to do. From there it's simply a matter of balancing your wants to your budget.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    JJ, if you got valuable (big or rare) trees on your land, and you want to build not too far, just post some pics and I can help with details.


    The best is still to build whatever far from them

    I saw a pic of a cute girl using a bottle of JD black for some stimulating purpose, so it is not a sexist prize, Moons
