Construction in Thailand Is building in Thailand as bad as it seems? Can properties really be built and fitted out to European standards? Would you like to Build your own house in Phuket, or a swimming pool in Bangkok? Solar water heating in Pattaya? Or maybe you want to build a resort or guesthouse on Koh Samui? If you want to build a luxury house in Thailand then this is the forum for you.

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.

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.

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.

no doors opening onto each other,door in bedroom now opening onto a wall and not sticking out into the open.

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.
