House build in Issan village


rodo555

Recommended Posts

Three weeks ago we started with the build of a modest two bedroom house in the village photos below , using a local well known builder

I'm happy two answer questions but nothing of a personal nature What I will say is that my TGF and I have been together for more than 4 years and whilst we call it our house I'm building it for her fc0ed8fef8700d1d6c8135fabf15e5d8.jpgfad4bf855f313b85c9830f5a9fcb120b.jpg8e39aa8bd3b2a801849ae8b09d4810b0.jpg792c5ada14800e2e9d7409142d28599b.jpg3958497e0029219e0f5686b3e099c9fa.jpg4e34006bc8febf0ef12472bcec8e4f48.jpg73443a72886ca53c7e866b871296b5f8.jpgeddea18502adff2afe13807be8d7320c.jpga27767a8119258da017f288a3385a23e.jpg5358094a1f3b8b0d9a80e4b0f13647a8.jpg64e9f6f9dc897c783d9587b7cd30a4e6.jpgand this is the house we have based the build on

Village is Ban Tad , district Bandung

 

The land we paid 200.000 Bt

 

The cost of the build 1000.000 paid in stages with the last 300.000 paid when finished and we are happy

Split system in Bedroom and living area is best for q/c. Might as well get reverse cycle as Issan can get chilly in the relatively short winter.  Get a good brand.

 

My wifeys land was 25,000B and the modest 2BR brick house cost 700,000B - 10 years ago.

 

Could not buy a tin-shed in the country here for that.

Not sure about what are good aircons here but be careful to check you will have enough electricity to run them. My line comes in through several rice paddies and connects a dozen houses before mine so I don't have enough power to run even one air con before 5pm most days. I bout a 15000 baht stepup transformer but that still doesn't work.

You will be about 30 klm from me. If you come to Sawang to shop and feel like a beer let me know.

Did you consider solar panels? Any accomplished installers in your part of Thailand?

No none here at all unfortunately.

 

I don't have cable internet where I am either so have to rely on my phone internet which is a pain and slow.

From what I understand from family cable is good but I'm amazed at the lack of sola panels
