    Site-Spesific

    Try Site-Specific: www.asitespecificexperiment.com

    They are from Bangkok, but the architect has its own builders so insure quality and budget. They built everywhere. I am currently started building with them in Roi-Et province. There strength is that the understand the need of a Farang and how to built a good house to the requirements and budget of the customer.

    the trouble starts when an architect listens too closely to the customer

    a lot of farangs only have ideas from their home country, where the climate is completely different

    I have visited many homes where they have a lovely lounge and dining room, both hardly used

    and minimal outside space, so everything is cramped
    I have reported your post

    Absolutely true!

    But a good architect listen to the needs and then designs a house, which really fulfils the needs - made for the tropical climate and the conditions in Thailand. Our architect had a lot of good ideas, which we never though-off.

    Site-Specific in our case, listen to our needs and wishes, also considered the plot (views, problems) and the local infrastructure - just "site-specific".

    For an etasblished architect you have to expect 1020% of the building cost.

    A design craftsman, who only brings all you ideas and work down to building plans, would be much cheaper of course.

    Indeed, indeed.

    Talk to the locals and take your time. IMHO.

    good luck
