    Those are all good points. I'm sure your house stays cool even with the A/C off! That's the way to be.

    It really boggles the mind the way native Thais and Farang alike build their cement boxes....

    Well, I am a "cool house nut" and it pleases me that this thread has turned that way. I think there should be a Thai Passive House masterthread here or a website. Oh well, I won't do it.:) Anyways,...

    The red brick walls are unsuited for this climate. They are very high thermal mass and turn your house into a heat sink in hot weather. Shade trees and "air gap sections" won't change this fact.

    One more note about Na Nai, our builder. He is a rough looking Thai country builder. During our build he did not have a pickup truck, only a Tuk-Tuk. I have never seen him wear a shirt with a collar....

  8. Deck Ape's Big Gringo House -- 10 years later

    Hi Gents. I built my house roughly 10 years ago. I thought it would be useful to look at what worked, what didn't etc. I will be taking a few pictures for demonstration. It was a big, expensive, time...

    Why are there no locally brewed ales?

    In my neck of the woods there is only Guiness at 190/ can and Coopers sparkling ale at 100/ small bottle.

    Would a small scale brewery do well in LOS? Brewing good dark ales, preferably?
