Is Surin on the baht bus route? I don't mind paying 20 baht though if needed.

My Pattaya budget is perfectly adequate as long as I don't spend any of it

Can't see the point of building a Palace up country. I would much prefer a neat small house up-country and a beachside residence south of Pattaya to Rayong

As long as she doesn't go pear shape :GoldenSmile1:

 

Maaate. When she gets to 42-44 I guarantee she will be pear shape. I have seen it happen with my wife before my very eyes - the amount they eat expands exponentially as you make them happier.

 

My wife eats so much she bloats up like a dead cow (shes not overly big) and then she craps it out overnight or next morning like a trooper.

 

Hint, make sure there is a squat toilet out the back!

 

All good fun.

 

p.s Roof leaks are the thing to be doubly careful to keep out... as with any house but jeeezus it rains hard up in Issan

Having got the T-shirt (and lost my shirt) it's not something I'd do again, but it looks very nice and I still find these builds fascinating.

 

Thanks for showing us, now I'll show you mine.

 

Apologies for the intrusion, but here's the house that Edge built .........

Nice Looking house mate ,looks very Thai style ,the only things I would had done would of been the two areas under the house to the left and the right of the truck ,I would have made them a bit higher so they could of served a purpose ,maybe a meter higher ,such a waist of space .Also the wooden stairs and balconies must get flooded out when heavy rain ,could get a tad wet coming home on a rainy day .The design could of been more practical for the monsoon season! (guttering might help).

 

But a nice looking house Edge !

You're right, but then it's your trade so you should know what you're talking about.

 

At the two lower sides the original design only raised enough for air movement underneath and the centre area wasn't usable either.

Even the centre area was only about a metre, so I jacked that up to 3 metres, but I wanted to keep the look, so the sides only went to about 1200-1500 (forget) - still high enough to travel under in a crouch and one side was intended as a dog run and the other a large shaded Koi pond which fed into an outer pond.

I had a thing about outside shaded area .....and there was a lot.

 

I didn't want to go higher than that and nor did I want to lose the split level look, but yes I would probably do it differently if there was a next time. It was classed as single storey for planning purposes.

Space wasn't an issue on the 1.5 Rai plot as the house could easily be extended on 2 elevations.

The tiled balconies and stairs were designed so that rainwater flowed to the bottom stairs and into the outer pond - overflowing from there into the garden. It never flooded, but gutters were planned. The base was raised above ground level, so the monsoon rains ran around the house and away down the garden.

 

The bottom line (for me) was that when the exchange rate crashed I stopped building (no wall or A/C or landscaping) so as far as I got I built at average 68 Baht/£.........also I split with the Ex, but that's another story.

The contracted build cost was 2.7 Mn, but as bathroom fittings and all flooring were upgraded from original spec', the roof went from cement to ceramic and the house was expanded by one metre in 3 directions, it finished up at 3.5 Mn.

 

I say finished, but I sold it and the buyer has spent about the same again on finishing it properly - money no apparent object.

The centre area is now a closed in office/party room with smoked glass overlooking a large swimming pool with 2 guest bungalows and waterfalls. There is a 2 storey maid's house at the rear and a 2 storey garage to the side.

With a mostly 3 metre high wall and every electronic gadget, it's impressive to say the least......and there's guttering now. :P
