    Thank you blowin. (If you have not yet seen it there is a Greenscaping thread as well if you are interested.) Short answer is our two level 260sqm home cost per sqm is in the vicinity of 12,500 baht. We have our builders detailed cost sheet and another sheet where we tracked every baht we've spent, from land purchase through to Malay Grass turf. If you are interested in more detailed information shoot me a DM and we'll do something offline. Regards, - BiP

    Home Stay Question

    BiP, is a "Home Stay" the same as what we call a "Bed & Breakfast" or B&B in the US?
    How is your business doing so far? Are you willing to share prices or costs on this site?
    Very interested - back channel or PM if necessary.
    Thanks,
    Amina

While I'm sure many TD folks have established and run much larger and more complex businesses, this is something quite new for the wife and I and I think we've got some interesting insights to share. That includes as we learn more about the business, our guest wants/needs and our product through this first season. Regards, -BiP

    Hi Amina, yes a homestay is basically the same as a B&B. Yesterday I created a new thread for it. Here is the link...

    https://teakdoor.com/northern-thailan...-province.html

    The first post provides details of how to access most of the information you are interested in. We opened on 1 August and will host our first two groups of paying guests tomorrow and Friday. Regards, -BiP

    Hi BoganIP,
    Thank you so much for this marvelous contribution on house building. I have just (well, took me a couple of days) read your whole thread and I enjoyed it immensely. Just like reading a novel you can hardly put away untill you have finished it. I would love to see your house, which I fwwl I know so well due to your storytelling. My wife (and I) have a house 75 kms west of Udon Thani that she have had for 25 years. We have been together for 20 years and have remodelled it twice (living in Denmark most of the year while she is still working). In 1989 and 2018. My concern at the moment is rain water from the roof. There wasn't put up any gottars in 2018. You seem ok with letting rainwater splash down on your cement apron; looking at older houses around the village it seems it will miscolor the painted walls of the house pretty fast, woun't it?

    Hi BoganIP,
    Thank you so much for this encredibly interesting thread. I have read it through this passed week like a book I could hardly put aside. Firstly it is so well ridden that you think you know both you and your place after having read it. It is so full of info, thoughts and facts about building a house and settling down.
    My thai wife and I live on our 20th year together partly in Denmark (she is still working) and 75 km west of Udon Thani. She built the house 25 years ago and we remodelled it in 1999 and 2017. You don't have any worries about the rainwater splashing down on your cement aprons and miscolour your walls? I intend to put up gutters soon even though it is only a 1-story house.
    Hope to see your wonderful place sometime.
    Jens

    Celebrating one year in our new home today. Will post some pics of then and now in this and the Landscaping threads over the coming days. Homestay business just completed an amazing first six month high season. Now in the low season but bookings keep coming in.

    Congrats to you both!

    My, how the time races past!

    Me? ...counting down to 30th March when I hang the work boots up for the last time, and start the next part of my journey.

    Your greenscape thread is really inspiring us for the garden work ahead - I cannot wait to get stuck into it!

    That invitation for you and Joy to visit still stands TD. But wait until the wet season kicks in at least. Just to prove how insane we are we are thinking about building another property up here.

    Congrats, BIP!!
    Sounds as you two are doing things right - slow and sure.

    Hospitality and related endeavors can be exasperating and burdened with fraught, yet rewarding in the long run.

    Best to ya.
