I have built a few houses in thailand and that one has a lot going wrong with It,my advice to any Falang building in thailand is to check out the builders work common sense and stay in thailand as long as you can and over see the building and you will minimise the fuck ups

OP I thought you didn't do remodeling/renovations, only build from the ground up.

Maybe he is starting the "renovation" with a Bulldozer. After I have seen the photo's, I probably would.

Normally we don't do fix ups but as this house is only 20 mins drive away and such a nice guy in thought we can help .

We have a small single story house next then them in the new year we hope to do a big development in Kho Chang .

So this is also a stop gap job .

I guess this will take 6 weeks ish .

First we add steel to the roof inside , and start footings for the front extension.

This is why we get work Marko we send weekly pictures and have a very user friendly contract and spec (in english).

Plus now internet phone calls are free from overseas .99% of out clients work and dont wanna lose $$ buy having to sit and watch guys build.

So they pay a little extra and get us guys in , easy .They can carry on working .

At first some of the wife's want brother or cousin to do it but once they see how and what we do ,most of them soon realise they could not of competed .

We don't mess around .

Thanks for your input guys I'm always happy to answer questions.

The wayer filter system is working fine , latter we will hide the pipe work in the concrete.

We need clean fresh none smelling water for the guys to shower , so thought we would do this first normally it one of the last jobs .

This is well water not government so it has lots of minerals hard salts and calcium in it , also it smells strong .

The pipe work looks great, I'd leave it exposed if it was my place.

 

What's the purpose of all the valves? Isolating units for cleaning/replacing filters?

Looking a lot better already. :)

 

It seems most houses in Thailand have the kitchen cupboards and sink tops made from concrete? Do they have pre made or made to order wood cupboards? Or is there a reason they don't?

One of the main reasons there is little wood is the termites! plus wood is expensive here.
