    Luxury Thai House Plans 3 bed 5 bath

    Many years ago the price to build this was just over 2 million baht, nowadays if done to plan it would be around 2.6 million baht, BUT, nobody having a house this big spends only that, they don't want 100baht light fittings, this sort of house normally has a fitted kitchen, fitted bedrooms, doubt they would want the 150baht a box of tiles priced for their floor, probably marble, granite or teak wood, something like this to finish and fit out nicely is going to cost 6 to 7 million, original plans has no roof insulation, maybe you would want double glazing etc etc etc. this is the ground floor floor plan, has a few utility rooms and a Thai bathroom and a farang one, upstairs is 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.









    You can download the full architects plans for this building here Luxury Thai House Plans 3 bed 5 bath.zip

    The best one so far, but would still need a much wider garage area for the missus to park one small car; might be best to reinforce the concrete supports too...

    I don't like the way they do the balconies all over the place. I'd like to know where my garden is and have a nice balcony with stairs; other balconies looking onto roads and stuff, I can do without...

    That house is virtually the same as I'm in (renting) now. There are balconies on three sides: to the front (watch the soi), to the back (wath the back of the neighbours house) and to the right (watch over the car port plastic roof and the neighbours sidewall). To my left is the large garden, very nice it is too, but no balcony or steps down... soooooo stupid.

    Awful. Can't stand these Ikea looking, soulless 10 a penny places that locals go for because they have pillars and look hi-so. No doubt behind a wall that's only pillars and shiny steel poles so everyone can see in. Built at the farthest possible point from the gate so every one can see how big your land is.

    Give me a modest, traditional, well built wooden house, in the middle of nowhere, behind a fukload of trees and boobytraps.

    Ever notice that the big balconies they go for, always at the front, with massive heavy wooden doors are never actually used... Ever.

    Balconies are for creating a nice place to relax, plants, palm trees for shade, wooden table etc etc. Drink your morning coffee on, read for an hour in the evening etc etc.

    Of course with plants and palm trees and stuff, people mightn't be able to see the expensive wooden doors though.

    ^What's your missing driving Betty? Seen a trend in these threads where you keep on saying that the driveway's too small for the missus to park safely.

    Is this her by any chance?

    ^ She's not that good. To give you an idea:

    On New Year's eve, she managed to have a collision in Central car park.

    Before then she has hit parked cars and parked trees at several local markets and at the wat. She also hit a 7 million tonn concrete barrier whilst attempting a U-turn underneath it. Despite my wondeful teachings ( ), she cannot get into the drive without about 20 (and I am not exagerating) to and fros... The day we got the car, I foolishly thought that the driving lessons and test pass might mean she could drive, she pulled out of the soi and almost hit the first wall - she did not know how to turn the wheel!!!

    She has now taken to listening to nice gentle Buddhist music in the car, and she meditates when she drives (I kid you not, I'm laughing as I'm writing this; it's so ridiculous, but is just a normal part of life here...).

    She's bad!

    True. Our house is an example. The bedroom balcony is bigger than the bedroom itself. Overlooking one side is a row of shit, dirty shop town houses which are spitting distance. The other side looks over the yard. The back has a platform which could be used as a balcony which hovers over the neighbors wall. When i first moved in to my wife's house, the first thing i did was clean the unused balcony. I used it for a week before i realized what a tit i looked.
    You bullied, you laughed, you lied, you lost!

    I think that is the point, the house is totally unsuitable for tropical living, useless unless you want to stay inside with the aircons on full blast

    If you lived in Bangkok pretty sure you would want to stay inside with the aircons on.

    You lot of romantic nutters can't live in Bangkok... We want big western homes where, as DD pointed out, we can stay inside our double glazed area with the aircon on, far away from noise and pollution... ahhh; we might pop out to our weekend homes in HH or KY at the weekend for some air and sights...

It will be cheaper and more of what I want as long as I am on site every day to oversee things and purchase all the materials.
    Don't like the cement boxes and like Doc said, they are not practical here in the tropics. I apoligize to all the cement home owners and this is just my opinion.

    I didn't say that, I said that type of cement house is ill conceived for the tropics

    I have built a cement house here that works fine

    you can even read the building thread!
