    Small Thai House Floor plans

    The thread for building a small house in Thailand for under 500,000baht, ie under 50 square meters, if you reckon 10,000baht per square meter building cost your going to end up with something quite nice, ie cheap granite floors, good roof with some insulation, maybe able to get a aircon or 2 included in the price, but no gold plated taps etc.

    So onto the first one, 36 square meters, 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and kitchenette, ignore the balcony as that would be extended to a proper outdoor seating area.



    Don't look so bad, only bad point is the shower area being 1 meter by 1 meter.

    So post your favourite floor plans.

    Although I can't really imagine living in a one bedroom house.

    Especially one that has more baths than beds.

    At least 1 meter by 2 meters, you may want to shower with a friend, I like to have my towel in the shower area and it not being wet, and also soaping up I like to get out of the water spray.

    this one of maos

    make a shower out of the bath space

    extend the rear verandah to twice the size - maybe the front also and have a single width verandah down the sides.

    vanfinkel, well done for giving the design thingy a go, what progam are you using.
    there are a few things i have noted that you may want to pay attention to.


    also, why no showers??and such small windows, work on a minumum of 10% of floor area for openings in the rooms.

    keep at it.

    It is called doors!

    They have doors on a house to go inside or to go outside if you allready are inside!

    He's right, all these doors should open inside the rooms.

    ^ indeed Balders, guess I was half sleepy already !


    Still, I feel one of both blue/yellow doors should go, especially the yellow one if you count of keeping that main double door opened to let the air flow.

    Small Prefab Home (MDL 5.5X6)

    Idea of a small prefab weekend house from "A Site-Specific Experiment" architects in Bangkok.

    MDL 5.5X6 A Site-Specific Experiment

    They have also a lot of ideas for sustainable and affordable designs, e.g. made from shipping containers.
