    Were you blessed with any wisdom gained from your three friends?

    ^^^^ I think those foldable ones are great if the space is small. If the space is large (like the one from @peciacake, then a built-in one makes sense).

    If you don't want to buy from a hardware store or online, you can prolly have one made for you. If you have a good welder, you/ he can prolly make one from aluminum or tubular steel.

    Here in PH, many builders use "tubulars" but I don't really know if they're made of iron or steel. They're used for fences, gates, clothes hanging rods, etc. They come in different sizes too: 1x1 inch, 2x1, 2x2, 2x4, etc.

    ^ 30,000 baht for the architect's drawings and the engineering certificate. Don't know who got how much, but it was money for almost nothing for the architect as we did all the creative work, the engineer did have to do some work for his share of the fees. As i said earlier we were going to save money and get a guy at the Or Bor Tor office to do it all but he moved on to greener pastures, so we had no choice but pay up. You win some, you lose some ...the electrical connection cost us a LOT less than the first quotes which were up to 6 figures.

    If you have a design of your own, one which isn't too unusual, it would be worth going to your local Or Bor Tor office and asking if they have anybody licensed to draw up the CAD plans. Not everywhere does, but somebody might save themselves several thousand baht.
