Looks good. Out of interest what's the budget for it? Interested to see the kitchen as well as I'm a keen chef.

Fantastic built.. Do you use Thai builders/labour. Seen them working on construction site, I asked them , how much they are getting for work, 200-300 bahts a day.. In Ireland , they are getting roughly €15-€25 an hour working as a builder/plasterer, now the construction business in Ireland is doomed due to property/bank/developments collapse..

at 1.7 million, that's not much cheaper than some houses in Pattaya are selling for (including the land). I would have thought Pattaya would be a huge markup over korat. So, is the housing market in Pattaya really competitive or is 1.7 million for a really, really nice house?

Nice looking house. I really like Phimai. Especially the old temple ruins. My ex-teerak was from there, and spent some time there.

Certainly true you get what you pay for here. Saw some town houses for sale 650,000 last year. Most have been sold now and year on everyones complaining. The houses are sinking. Cracks in the walls. Walls coming away from ceilings. We paid 1.3 mil for ours and the house is guaranteed. However the front yard and back yard aren't. Only the actual structure. If that makes sense.

Another thing to watch out for is accepting a quote where the materials to be used are "grade A" and finding out they are actually using grade B !!!!!

I wonder if there is lower than B ............C?

is this in Pattaya? 50,000 USD seems like a lot to me to have the house built by a contractor, that's all. I would have thought a well built house in the US in a small town wouldn't be more than 100K.

Near Bangkok. It's in a residential estate/village whatever you call them. It's a town house. The ones at the front go for about 2.4 mil. They are 4 bedroom detached houses.

Well built houses are about $200,000k in the US and you must look hard to find them. Try around 300,000k for what you're talking about. Unless, of course, you live in Idaho, Wyoming, or New Mexico then I'd say 100k. Otherwise, you'll be waking up everyday worried if someone has stolen your car or other possessions. Either way, it's becoming harder and harder to afford a decent house anywhere. Propably why most house holds employ both parents to keep their heads above water.

I would think Idaho is a more prime real estate location than Korat, no? My point is forget about the cost of the actual land, how much to build a house in the cheapest place in the US? Shouldn't that be much, much more expensive than building it in Thailand?

 

I'm not trying to be difficult here (although it may seem so :) ). Is it that Farang amenities that cost so much? How much to build a really nice Thai style house? (not a shack, but a nice house with outside simple kitchen and thin pipes, ...).

My friend, I know you're not trying to be difficult and I didn't take it that way. However, 1.7M Baht is only 50,000 Dollars. If you can build this house, as I'm sure you noticed it's not a stick frame, for 50k then I think you're doing very well no matter where you build it. Materials alone are probably going to be close to that in the states. Me, I cannot understand how they build so cheap there in Thailand other than they are cutting corners somewhere. However, I'm no expert in the field of construction, just my thoughts.

Why has this thread gone from one of someone getting a house built near Bangkok, which, last time i looked was in Thailand, to one where people are discussing house build prices in various places in USA???? :)

Looks like it is about 150m2 under Roof, is that correct?

 

Which works out to about TB 11,333 per m2? or US377 per m2? is that about right!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
