    Pete's New Build

    Hi all, I have been directed here from the Newbie lounge, I have just started my new house build just outside of Udon Thani.

    I do not have many pics as of yet as I am working on the other side of the world, my wife has promised me some new ones, so I will post as soon as I can.

    OK....the first thing I done after the upfill was to build the wall around the land, I have ordered the Stainless steel gate and fences, so will post the pics once that has been done.

    Fair size chunk of dirt. How big is it?
    Is that an Aussie flag flying?

    No pics.

    We want to upgrade to stainless steel gate and fences in the future, they do look nice, when I have looked at others on my moobaan.
    The builders just painted on with no primer, and lots of gates in my moobaan look terrible with rust coming through and huge flakes peeling off.
    Only 2 years old.

    How much is your quote?

    Gate

    Udonite, after reading many various posts I decided to go for SS for the same reasons you have, again after a lot of homework I had budgeted 300,000, I let my wife do the deal and got it for 270,000, he is a really good guy in Udon Thani with a real descent workshop, the gate is 5m but I do not want it installed till the house is complete, we have paid 50% and the rest on completion, I will post pics when the instalation starts.

    I hope you guys can see the pics now.

    Pic

    Thanks guys, believe it or not I really do not know how to pronounce or spell where the village is, its about 25 mins drive from Tesco Lotus heading towards Nong Khai, I am rarely there due to work between Geneva and poxy Nigeria.

    Anyways I will post pics when I get them which has been very eractic of late, I think this is do to the fact my wife has rice land and its been all hands on deck planting.

    Here is a pic taken from the back of the house.

    That "brick" I think is facia. It's only a couple of centimetres thick. Am I right?

    I decided to make my wall out of stone. No painting and the older it gets, the better it looks.
    Nothing worse than black streaks down the paintwork after a couple of rainy seasons.

    Yes they are facia bricks, but I think it has a nice effect, I also prepared the walls prior to painting that should keep the black streaks away hopefully.

    I think once the SS is in place it should look good, will post some pics once installed.

    Style of House

    The following pic was the original plan, but it has grown in size due to my wifes requestes to the Architect, the colour of the tiles are very different now along with the colour of the house, I will try and get an updated model and post, but this should give you an idea of the finished house......hopefully

    Yeah, thought so. looks really good. Just finished a house refurbishment and used facia bricks for part of the bathrooms.
    Big house. How many bedrooms?

    Thanks for the comments guys, it has 3 bedrooms and the original price for the build was 2.9 million, but has increased by 300,000 due to various changes.

    The above does not include buying the land, upfill, wall, SS gates and fencing, thats approx an additional 1 million.
