    global house chalong (superstore)

    Its located on the road from Chalong circle to Kata Karon on the right hand side just before the hill heading west
    This shop is huge and has a big range of the same types of items which gives you multiple choices at very good prices
    A few of the items i could have bought there which i bought of lazada because i could not find locally and at cheaper prices than lazada are as follows
    toilet pan set 20 types, electricity ground/earth rods 8 types, car trolley jack 7 types, electricity generator 8 types, mountain bike 10 types
    definitely worth checking out if passing, my first stop shop when i need anything in the future, they will probably have it in stock
    its also wheelchair friendly with no steps or ramps (and a elevator to the second floor my wife told me)
    basically al types of building hardware, household items including white goods and furniture, gardening supplies and equipment and power and hand tools

    they have everything you might require for you home, some of things you might find hard to buy
    off grid solar power systems
    swimming pool chemicals, cheaper than most pool shops
    solar powered water pumps and all other types as well
    a huge range of safes including gun and document safes
    easy to spend a hour there just looking around

    There are over 70 stores in Thailand. Why only one in Phuket?

    โกลบอลเฮ้าส์ ศูนย์รวมวัสดุก่อสร้างและของตกแต่ง

    Surely a good sight-seeing for D-I-Y builder, moi enjoying that more than 10 years. Just today bought a shower corner:

    Because they started in Roi Et, spread throughout Northeast and continue expansion.
    Started as a family biz, went public so now have cash to expand. Suppose HomePro is their major competition so they are likely to open where they can grab a share of HomePro's market.

    Don't rely on that first impression, you always have to check out various offers. Sometimes one wonders how they set up their prices. Also Thai Watsadu to check, in case they are there round. Or any other...

    I apologize for the thread drift here, BUT, I did some extended hiking (trekking) in Europe a few years ago and we couldn't figure out how European people wash their feet. I'm not fat (and neither is my buddy who hiked the trails with me) but we could NOT bend over to wash our feet (which needed washing for sure after trekking the mountains)
    Is there a secret to washing feet in these tiny showers? Seriously.

    Most of these shower boxes are 90x90cm. For feet washing a stool is to be used, with the door open.

    Herewith how it's installed in my wife's bathroom recently extended.

    Exceptionally, not D-I-Y and not according to my ingenious advice. The wife engaged another man who could follow her (sometimes not so easy) ideas (but not free of charge as myself)...
