    Hi Thaiman,

    It looks like a bargain to me for a 3 bedroom 2 bath house . 162 sq, meters of living space is a good sized home. How much land do you have and what did you have to pay for it? I like the upstairs porches. i think you will be comfortable for a good while in the house . I bet you can't wait to move in next October.
    Life is a state of mind.

    just a thought. with that quality looking scaffolding, would you be liable if it fell down and someone hurt themselves? also the scaffolding isnt independent. just one row of standards on the outside, which means all the horizontal 'tubes' [wood] is going through your lovely plastered wall in nice little holes

    looks nice though

    My house is 4 bedroom house one bedroom down stairs three bedroom upstairs.We have about 1/2 a rai of land and the cost of the land was nothing as it was my father and morther inlaws land.They had there house on the land before we started building.We knock it down an used the wood for the new house.With all the extras the house price shound come to about 2million baht.But no funiture yet.We started the building last October.First we went to a builders merchants to find out if they Knew a builder who could draw plans and build the house for us.He said come back the next day to show us some plans and ideas.
    the nex day we came back looked at some plans but the houses were to big,so he said he whould draw new plans whith some of our ideas,and also he came back to the old house to look to see if the wood was very good to use.
    The next few days he came back with some new plans and a price to build the house and also a contract to ,if he did'nt finish the house on time he pay a fine.He gave the build about 5 months to build.He started to knock down the house a coulpe a days later and back fill with soil which was'nt in the price.We had to leave when they started building but we get all the information from my brother in law,emails a month because he lives in Bangkok but now he staying every month in Doonsad and also many phone calls to him.Up to now he is doing a good job.I send some photos later.

    Nice looking house Thaiman. Looks like your builders were a professional outfit
    ' Hang Hoon Suan Limited C. ' rather than local village builders.

    Nice looking house mate and thanks for sharing your experience with us!

    Make sure you get good quality paint as for that price I reckon they will cut corners with regard to the finishing.

    Now is the time to stay on top of them everyday.

    ICI Paint is probably the best along with Jotun, Dulux and Nippon Paints. Make sure they do not mix water into the base paint because this is a common trick they use.

    Make sure you get a good quality exterior paint and they should apply at least 2 coatings after the undercoat has been properly applied.

    For wood finishing get Berger Woodgrain lacquer as this product is the best for Thai weather conditions and good luck.
