» Alcoholic beverages of Isaan
Feb 08, 2016 - 5:01 PM - by Chittychangchang
If you have been fortunate enough to visit the north east or travel Thailand you will not be surprised to know the region has more than 160,000 square kms of land, is nearly half the size of Germany and holds one third of the land mass of Thailand. Further-more Isaan is considered by many to be the cradle of human settlement in Thailand, what is strange is that it is the least visited region for tourism.

» Tying the blocks to the posts and windows.....
Feb 08, 2016 - 2:59 PM - by Gentmartin
Good afternoon fine* ladies and gents...

A couple of quick questions I cant get my head around,

Firstly, how do they tie in the brickwork to the upright posts, especially with the lightweight blocks ?

Secondly, why do they insist on forming a concrete surround for the door and window frames ? Obviously there needs to be a lintel cast, but why below and at the sides of the frame.

thank you :-)

I have been trying to find a Blown Insulation contractor in Nonthaburi or BKK. Does anybody know of any. I cannot install fibre glass rolls because the loft access does not allow man access.

Feb 06, 2016 - 3:35 AM - by jimbobs
Alright chaps
I usually fuck about on here but I will try to give something back to the forum and its users
I have over 25 years in construction management / civil engineer works
I originally started work in the construction, eg housing and nursing homes etc
About 15 years ago I moved specifically into civils and concrete frame construction
I still have a basic knowledge on house bashing but my area of expertise is civils.
So if anyone is needing advice... [Read More]

» Seriously .... no muckin about .
Feb 05, 2016 - 5:28 PM - by Wasp
We need some proper serious wisdom here and I promise I won't turn it into a Thread.

Suppose you dig out some 'oles and put in concrete pillars in a proper and serious way.

Then you realise you actually need another 5 feet . Can you safely and nicely extend them ? Or do you need to dig it all up and start again ?

» Lahu People in Northern Thailand
Jan 31, 2016 - 1:45 AM - by Chittychangchang
It is generally accepted that the Lahu originated on the Tibetan Plateau and over the centuries migrated to China and later to Myanmar, Laos and eventually to Thailand in the 1870s or 1880s



In Thailand the Lahu are one of the main groups categorized as hill tribes and are known by their Shan name Musuh(... [Read More]

» Tired of Building in Bangkok
Jan 27, 2016 - 3:00 PM - by Tiredofbuilding
I have been in the construction business in Thailand for several years now. Mostly house, condo, shop renovations. I am kind of a methodical person. I have most of Bangkok mapped out with suppliers, prices, etc. After building everything I can think of I am just board and tired of building things. I used to spend 600-1000 daily on motorbike taxis to find chemical suppliers, building material suppliers, food chemi suppliers. Now I have it all mapped out and its become routine.
